24 Hour Multiple Sclerosis Mega Swim
Did you know there are estimated to be 2.5 million people living with MS worldwide? This insidious disease is most commonly diagnosed in young women between the ages of 15 – 40 years.
Like us, you probably have someone in your life who is living with MS and often wonder how you can help?
One great way you can help is to get involved in fundraising. Our friends/family/customers with MS have told us that WrapMeCool® helps with the effects of heat sensitivity caused by MS, and we really wanted to do more.
We were proud to be a part of the 24 Hour MS Mega Swim in Sydney, Australia. This event raises funds for MS Australia’s Go for Gold Scholarships, financial assistance programs and providing services to directly benefit those living with MS.
It was wonderful to be on the MS Mighty Stingrays team and see many inspirational people working together for a common cause. The added bonus is that we had so much fun!!
Go ahead and find out about fundraising in your local area and make a difference in the lives of people living with MS.
We are on a mission to help people have a better present moment and therefore a better life.
Thank you for sharing our blog with anyone you know who is dealing with the discomfort of heat sensitivity.

You might be shocked to learn that Canada has in excess of 100 000 people living with MS — estimated to be the highest rate of any country in the world!
Like many people, we are personally touched by the effect of MS, so we jumped at the opportunity to join WAMS in their fundraising efforts. We are excited to be attending their annual networking luncheon in Vancouver, and delighted to have donated WrapMeCools for the silent auction.
There has been a lot of discussion in the Australian media lately about heat waves.
Besides being really draining and uncomfortable heat waves are a major source of harm to people, not just because of bush fires, but as events that lead to illness, hospitalisations and sometimes death!
