The Cairns MS Swimathon is a fundraising event where teams of at least 6 people are sponsored by friends, family and work colleagues to swim in a 12 hour relay; raising vital funds for Queenslanders living with multiple sclerosis (MS).
You don’t need to be a ‘competitive’ swimmer to participate – people of all abilities can join in and take part. You can swim any style or distance that suits you; whether it be 1 or 100 laps in freestyle, breaststroke, sidestroke, or doggy paddle – it is all about participation and raising funds to help beat MS!
Raise over $100 and receive a MS Swimathon t-shirt
Raise over $250 and receive a limited edition towel
The funds you raise will provide much needed services and support to people living with MS in the local area
Healthy competition is important but raising dollars for people with MS is the reason we hold these events, so….we award your efforts in and out of the pool!
Awards and prizes are given to the highest fundraising team, highest fundraising individual, best-dressed team and more!
The day is not just about swimming laps. We provide entertainment, food options and novelty activities to help your team conquer this 12hour challenge!
The Cairns MS Swimathon has raised $19,692.62 so far...
