Tips for the MS 24 Hour Mega Swim

With the MS 24 Hour Mega Swim approaching quickly we have compiled some helpful tips for you and your team while you complete the 24 hour challenge to help raise much needed funds for multiple sclerosis.

Swimming
When it comes to the actual event the main rule is someone from your team must be in the water at all times. A helpful tip may be to create a swimming roster to make sure everyone knows when they are swimming. Also make sure that each swimmer is swimming for a reasonable amount of time they feel comfortable with and can adequately swim to ensure everyone can complete they event safely (we don't want anyone passing out or collapsing). A very important tip is to make sure you get plenty of rest and make sure you stay hydrated with fresh and non-chlorinated water!

Fundraising
The main aspect of this event is fundraising money to help people with multiple sclerosis. Firstly, create a manageable target of how much you want to raise. Next, start out your fundraising by asking friends or family if they would be happy to donate any amount possible to the cause. If you want to get creative in trying to raise as much as possible than try something like a fundraising event such as a morning tea, sausage sizzle or trivia night. Get creative and motivated to raise those funds!

Lastly, make sure you have fun and encourage everyone participating! Not only is this a fundraising event but it is a fun event to push yourself and enjoy the company of friends, family and meet new people.
