Partners in Swim

Even though the weather is turning colder and the leaves are starting to change colors and fall to the ground, that doesn’t mean you can’t swim! There’s no better inspiration and motivator than a teammate, partner, friend, or family member to push you towards your goals. Grab a partner who motivates you and take on a Swim for MS challenge together this fall! Learn more at SwimForMS.org.
