Swim for MS – Why I Swim Videos Selected as a Winner in the 35th Annual Telly Awards
MSAA is proud to announce its Swim for MS – Why I Swim videos won a Silver Telly Award in the category of Online Campaign/Not-for-Profit. The 35th Annual Telly Awards received nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries.
MSAA’s Swim for MS – Why I Swim videos were produced, in collaboration with Genzyme, a Sanofi company, to promote the benefits of aquatic exercise and to serve as an inspiration to the entire MS community. Launched to raise awareness about MSAA’s online Aquatic Center, the three Why I Swim videos feature individuals in different stages of their MS journey who have incorporated swimming or aquatic exercise into their overall wellness plan.
The Telly Awards’ prestigious judging panel evaluates entries to recognize distinction in creative work. The Silver Award is given to less than 10% of entries and it is the Telly’s highest honor. MSAA has won four previous Telly Awards for various educational videos on multiple sclerosis, including a 2007 Silver Award for A Closer Look at Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms – Part One.
