MSWA Swim

February 28, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

On Saturday, 24 February 2018, swimmers took to the water for the 7th annual MSWA Albany Swim!

The amateur swimming event took place at the Albany Aquatic and Leisure Centre, where 133 participants across 11 teams battled it out to swim the longest distance in a set 8-hour period.

Teams of 10 or more challenge themselves in the swim - they had to have one swimmer in the water at all times for the duration of the event. There are no rules on how the competitors swim the event (freestyle, backstroke, doggy paddle!) as long as they complete each lap without the use of swim aids or devices (e.g. flippers).

A huge congratulations to Rachelle Williamson-Wright who was the highest individual fundraiser, Team Marines who were the highest fundraising team & Camfield Crusaders who swam the most laps over the 8-hours.

This year the event raised over $21,000! An amazing effort by all involved. This generous support allows MSWA to offer a wide range of services to people living with MS and other neurological conditions in the Great Southern Region.

This swim was run with the support of the Southern Ports Authority - Port of Albany, the City of Albany and the Albany Leisure and Aquatic Centre.
