WithMS4MS: swim across Juan de Fuca

$5,314 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 83 people in 8 months
On July 31, weather permitting, I will dive into the frigid waters of Juan de Fuca Strait and swim 30+km in 10C water to raise awareness about the benefits of exercise for people with Multiple Sclerosis and funds for the MS community in Victoria.

 Diagnosed over 20 years ago, I have been swimming my way to health for over 10 years.  I have experienced the value of exercise as a disease management tool first hand and hope to inspire others with MS to exercise!

On December 16, 2016, just one week before Christmas, the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada closed the MS centre located at North Park in Victoria, British Columbia. The centre served as a fitness centre for the MS community for over 40 years.

Many of us who live with Multiple Sclerosis saw the centre as a vital part of how we remain healthy and manage our disease. We have therefore established our own non-profit - the  MS Wellness Centre - and are working toward establishing a new centre for those living in Victoria and the surrounding area. We have already begun to provide services to our friends with MS through grassroots initiatives!

We have officially recieived non-profit status through the BC Government and and working toward charitable status with the federal government. Although we can not offer tax receipts at this time we can guarantee that your donations will go directly toward helping your friends and neighbours with MS.
