Thank You for Diving into Action this Summer!

Thank you to everyone who participated in this summer’s Swim for MS Pool Party – swimmers, supporters, family, and friends! The generous help and dedication of all involved helped to raise funds to support individuals with multiple sclerosis through the many vital programs and services offered by MSAA.

The Swim for MS Pool Party, part of MSAA’s popular Swim for MS program, took place from Memorial Day to Labor Day 2012. Pool Party volunteers hosted one-day events in their own backyard or community pool – such as swimming laps, doing cannonballs or a game of Marco Polo – and collected pledges from friends and family. A few highlights from this summer’s Pool Party:

Marcus B. from Texas completed 500 jumps in his local pool and raised $100 with his Pool Party.

Jeannie L. in Florida raised over $1,200 by organizing a Synchronized Swim for MS Pool Party for her 50th birthday!

Cody J. of Pennsylvania held a 24 Hour Swim Party and collected over $1,600 to help those with multiple sclerosis.

Coming Soon! Though the summer Pool Party may be coming to an end, be on the lookout for the new and improved year-round Swim for MS, featuring an updated design and easier ways to create, improve, and utilize your Swim pages.
