Tobruk Pirates

Townsville MS Swimathon

We are taking part in the 2021 MS Swimathon, to join the fight against multiple sclerosis.

We are raising funds to show my support and your donation will make an impact to change the lives of people living with MS.

Did you know:

  • On average, more than 10 Australians are diagnosed with MS every week
  • The average age of diagnosis is just 30 years of age.
  • Three out of four Australians with MS are women

Your support will help fund essential services like physiotherapy, occupational therapy, counselling and symptom management, as well as MS research to look for better treatments and ultimately a cure for the disease.

Please DONATE to support our swim to help ensure no one faces MS alone.
