Held annually, and in its 15th year, the Mighty Swim is a beloved community event for people of all ages and swimming abilities. Participants are encouraged to get a team of up to 30 people together to compete to swim the most laps in 24 hours. Teams compete in a relay style, with one person in the pool at all times.
But the fun isn’t just restricted to the pool. There will be loads of entertainment and activities to make the Mighty Swim a great family weekend! Including a live band, water slide, face painting and yoga plus opportunities to win great prizes.
In the lead up to the big weekend, teams and participants raise funds for the MS Society. All funds raised support vital services for people living with multiple sclerosis and research into the cause and cure for MS.
The MS Mighty Swim is the MS Society SA & NT’s biggest fundraising event of the year. The 2020 event will be held on Saturday 8 & Sunday 9 February at Unley Swimming Centre.

Participants can also stay for the delicious barbecue dinner on Saturday night, and a hot barbecue breakfast on Sunday morning available for a gold coin donation. Every participant will receive one FREE dinner and one breakfast. There will be vegetarian and gluten free options available.
