Dozens of swimmers young and old made a big splash at Aquamoves over the weekend for a good cause.

Five teams and 50 participants raised more than $10 000 in the MS MegaSwim in Shepparton, with all proceeds going towards assisting those living with multiple sclerosis.

A large number had their own personal motivations for taking part in the event, with many having a family member or friend living with the debilitating disease.

The MS MegaSwim has raised more than $100 000 in Shepparton alone since it was first held in the city seven years ago.
