Welcome to Swim for MS
What is Swim for MS?
Swim for MS is a national fundraiser in which volunteers create their own swim challenge while recruiting online donations to support the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America (MSAA). Swim for MS is unique because you can create and arrange your own special Swim activity, participating individually or recruiting other swim enthusiasts to form a team.
How do I Swim for MS?
You’ll find many fun and creative ways to dive into action and raise funds for MS. Popular Swim for MS activities fall into two main categories:
Go the Distance – individuals or teams set a challenge goal to swim a certain amount of laps, distance, or time during one day or over a set period of time (i.e., swim 500 laps in 30 days to raise $1,000 for MS).
Make a Splash – participants turn fun pool activities into exciting fundraisers, such as pool-volleyball tournaments, cannonball-jumping contests, and more. You can even dedicate your next birthday party as a Swim for MS Pool Party!
