MS Go for Gold Scholarships: Helping you achieve your dreams
NDISArticle from March 2020 edition of Intouch eNewsletter

Focusing on positive outcomes for people living with multiple sclerosis is a key factor in what we do here At MSL and one of the main reasons that we offer the MS Go for Gold Scholarship Program.

In the last year, we awarded 55 deserving people a scholarship so that they could pursue a dream which enables them to be defined by something more than just their multiple sclerosis.

Ameera’s story

Ameera is an international para-archer and her dream is to represent Australia in the 2020 Paralympics in Tokyo.

Knowing that she needed to find a way to buy a tailored bow to be able to compete at a higher level and increase her performance, Ameera applied for a Go for Gold Scholarship – and she got it!

Since using her scholarship to buy new equipment, Ameera’s personal best improved dramatically and at the start of 2019, she placed first in three heats at the Australian Paranationals.

Where the scholarships come from

The MS Go for Gold Scholarship Program is funded by the MS 24 Hour Mega Swim events. As the title suggests, the Mega Swim events see participants take part in a 24-hour swimathon to raise money and awareness for MS.

Last year, 9,494 kms were swam at the MS 24-Hour Mega Swim events, equal to the distance from Melbourne to Beijing!

People in New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and the ACT who are living with MS will be eligible to apply for an MS Go for Gold scholarship when applications open in late April. Look out for communications from the MSL Community Fundraising team in April and start thinking about what dream you could achieve with an MS Go for Gold scholarship.
