Brothers make a splash for MS funding


TEN traditional footballers and "brothers", figuratively speaking, will swap their footy shorts for trunks to help out a mate.

The annual MS (Multiple Sclerosis) Swimathon makes a splash today at the Milne Bay Aquatic Centre from 6am to 6pm.

Toowoomba Brothers League Club captain Luke Fraser participated last year in honour of his father David who is living with MS.

He's back at it again this year and every step of the way has been his football club.

Last year Mr Fraser's team managed to raised more than $5000 for the cause and hope to match it this year.

The MS Swimathon season includes nine events across the state.

On the day teams swim together in relay style for 12 hours, racking up the kilometres with a lot of fun and friendly competition along the way.

Mr Fraser and his fellow brothers are calling on the community to show their support or take part next Saturday.

MS is the most common chronic neurological condition affecting young adults in Australia.

Mr Fraser's father David was diagnosed with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis in 2009 and is confined to a wheelchair.

His mum Peta said there was no treatment for his father's Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis.

Teams participating in the Toowoomba MS Swimathon event strive to raise $40,000.
