SWIMMERS at Milne Bay Aquatic Centre have raised a sweat and more than $20,000 for multiple sclerosis services in the Toowoomba region.
That figure continues to grow each day as more funds are pledged to support the volunteers at today's MS Swimathon.
The eight teams kept at least one member each swimming laps during the 12-hour-straight fundraiser.
It was the first time the event had been held in Toowoomba.
Multiple sclerosis patient Sharon Payton was swimming laps with her son 11-year-old Clinton, who had already covered more than a kilometre by noon.
"Clinton is the kind of person who has a go at anything," Ms Payton said.
"He found out about the Swimathon and wanted to do it to support me - usually you'd think it would be the other way around.
"So I ended up having to come to support him!"
Donations will still be open for another three weeks.
