Toowoomba MS Swimathon

Important Update (14/11/19): Thank you for your amazing support of the 2019 Toowoomba Swimathon.

Unfortunately, due to the current fire conditions across the Toowoomba/Darling Downs region we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone the Toowoomba MS Swimathon that was scheduled for Saturday 16 November 2019.

Details about the rescheduled Toowoomba MS Swimathon will be announced soon which we promise will be just as action-packed!

If you have any queries about the postponement, you can contact MS Queensland on (07) 3840 0812 or email

The Toowoomba 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!


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 Toowoomba MS Swimathon has raised $18,438.82 so far...
