Seven-year-old Olivia Moore of Aurora is using her love of swimming to help raise money to improve the lives of those living with multiple sclerosis.

Olivia's mother, Leanne, was diagnosed with MS in March. Both Olivia and Leanne are avid swimmers, making Swim for MS the perfect way to raise awareness about the debilitating disease. Olivia currently swims for the Maverick Swim Club of Naperville.

"I am swimming for MS for my mom. My mom is brave and I love her so much," Olivia says on her fundraising Web page.

Swim for MS encourages participants to set a swimming-related challenge, such as swimming laps over a set time or distance while recruiting friends and family to donate to the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America in support of their goals. Swim for MS is any pool, any time -- how volunteers choose to participate is completely up to them.

On Saturday, June 27, Olivia has challenged herself to swim one mile with her mom and family cheering her on. To donate in support of Olivia or for information, visit support.mymsaa.org/goto/OliviaMoore.

For questions about this initiative or any of the Multiple Sclerosis Association's programs and services, contact Sarah Masino, community relations coordinator at (800) 532-7667, ext. 122, or smasino@mymsaa.org.
