The Cairns MS Swimathon is a fundraising event where teams of at least 6 people are sponsored by friends, family and work colleagues to swim in a 12 hour relay; raising vital funds for Queenslanders living with multiple sclerosis (MS).
You don’t need to be a ‘competitive’ swimmer to participate – people of all abilities can join in and take part. You can swim any style or distance that suits you; whether it be 1 or 100 laps in freestyle, breaststroke, sidestroke, or doggy paddle – it is all about participation and raising funds to help beat MS!
Not a team of champion swimmers but want a head start in your lap count? Bonus Laps is for you!
Teams will be awarded 1 lap for each $50 that their team raises. Laps will be calculated based on the amount of online fundraising at 5pm on the day before the event and will be added to each teams lap tally prior to the start of the Swimathon. The more funds your team raises, the more bonus laps you will receive!
