Swim for MS News - November 2017
This month’s featured swimmer is Amanda Fisher.
Amanda has always had a passion for swimming. She swam on the swim team
throughout high school, swam for exercise in college, and even became a
swim coach for her local high school swim team. Amanda is a mother of
two daughters and a full-time middle school teacher. It was hard for her
to find time to swim, until she came across Swim for MS. Amanda set a
challenge for herself to swim 300 laps in just 13 days. She knew it was a
lot to do in a short amount of time, but was determined to make it
“Having MSAA as my reason to swim has been truly inspirational, and even after my challenge is completed, I will continue to swim for those who have MS.”
