What is the Lane of Fame?
As the warmer months approach and the MS Swimathon gets ready to return for another year, we are very excited to introduce our ‘Lane of Fame’ to the MS Swimathon community. The Lane of Fame is a way of recognising and rewarding some of our inspiring swim supporters who have shown incredible dedication (both in and out of the pool) to the MS Swimathon.
Since it began in 2010, the MS Swimathon has grown across Queensland, with hundreds of wonderful supporters dusting off their goggles and swimming caps, taking on the challenge of a 12-hour swim relay and showing the almost 4000 Queenslanders living with MS that they do not have to face it alone.
Over the years, the MS Swimathon has become a tradition for many supporters. It is a chance to come together, connect with the local community and get involved in their cities ‘biggest pool party.’
What’s a party without a bit of celebration? The MS Swimathon Lane of Fame is a chance for the MS Queensland team to celebrate the amazing achievements of our wonderful swimmers who have returned to the pool year after year, and made a HUGE impact with their fundraising.
In 2021, we are excited to welcome our first group to the Lane of Fame, recognising all those who have taken part in the MS Swimathon for 5+ years or raised $5000 or more (across multiple years).
