As a person living with Multiple Sclerosis and an open water swimmer, it was part of my destiny that I one day become the event’s director.
With the help of my incredible friend MJ VanBergen, each year, on the second to last or last Sunday in July the Thetis Lake Swim for Multiple Sclerosis sees over 100 swimmers participate in 1 of 7 events. With the shortest event being 800 meters, and wetsuits permitted, it’s a fantastic way for new open water swimmers to introduce themselves to the sport.
Funds raised from the event are used to help the newly formed MS Wellness Centre in Victoria. The centre provides face-to-face services for people in the community living with MS.
You can learn more about the Thetis Lake Swim for MS on the event’s website.
