Tips for the nervous swimmerTips for the Nervous Swimmer:

  • Buy goggles that fit to avoid uncomfortable under-eye creases
  • Build a strong core on dry land; swimming uses every muscle in your body
  • Start by treading water to get your blood flowing
  • Take it two laps at a time, if able to, to develop stamina
  • Familiarize yourself with the breaststroke so you can easily get yourself from one side of the pool to the other
  • Have fun with your swim!

Mother’s Day is Almost Here

Mother’s Day is almost here!

All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother. – Abraham Lincoln

Mother’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to honor the special mothers in your life. They could be your own mom, a sister, grandmother, daughter, friend, or co-worker. While these caring individuals deserve to be recognized every day, we can pause and give thanks on this very special day. Honor these special women with a donation to the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America (MSAA). Your donation will enable us to fulfill our mission of improving lives today for the entire MS community. With each donation, you will have the option to send a personalized online card to the person being honored, letting her know of your support of MSAA.

Your gift supports vital services and support such as our toll-free Helpline, equipment distribution, MRI assistance, and more.

“Thank you so much for making such an impact on my summer. I have 4 kids and I have been able to do a lot with them this season because of the cooling vest. Even take them swimming in the humidity. I appreciate your kindness.”
- I. P., North Carolina 

Please make your special Mother’s Day donation today! Improve lives today by honoring the special women in your life.

Happy Mother’s Day!
