This year’s MS Mighty Swim at the Unley Swimming Centre is getting close and the City of Unley would like to contribute again with a team.
Believe it or not we are coming up on a 10 year partnership with the M.S Society and almost $500,000 raised!
This season the event is occurring over the weekend of Saturday 8th and Sunday 9thof February 2014. The event consists of teams of up to 20 people who compete as a team to raise the most funds and swim the greatest distance over a 24 hour period.
Traditionally the City of Unley has fielded a team and been very successful, our greatest achievement coming in 2012 when we raised $12,000 for the MS society and covered 97km.
It is not about winning (although it is nice), it is about having fun and doing something selfless for others. Please note you do not have to be a great swimmer to be involved.
This year it would be great for the City of Unley, to continue the tradition and enter a team. It would be even better if some new, fresh faces took up the challenge and got involved.
Why not train for the event to help you achieve some of your own personal fitness goals?
We are currently looking for the following;
– A team captain – As it sounds to lead and organise the team (I am happy to mentor)
– Swimming team members (I swam last year but reckon I will leave it to others this year)
– A fundraising co-ordinator
– Fundraising team members and support staff
Please do not hesitate to be in touch if you have any questions.
Get involved and feel great about yourself!
