Swim for MS News - November 2018
Meet Scott Cremeans, this month’s featured swimmer and October’s top fundraiser. When Scott signed up to participate in Swim for MS his goal was to swim 350 meters in the month of October. He not only surpassed this goal, he easily blew that goal out of the water and swam nearly 13,000 meters!
Months prior to beginning his Swim for MS challenge, Scott learned how to swim specifically using only his arms. “Without the use of my legs I knew my goal of 350 meters would be difficult, but I faced that challenge and won! Challenges are what make life interesting, overcoming them is what makes them meaningful.” Scott encourages everyone to challenge themselves and sign up for Swim for MS.
