Congratulations to Jane and Lend Lease for their outstanding commitment to helping MS Australia over such a long period of time… Your generosity demonstrates the like-mindedness of our two organisations when it comes to helping people

All funds go towards Lend Lease’s annual contribution to the 24 Hour Mega Swim event in support of MS Australia – something that they’ve been involved with for 11 years.

“In that time, Lend Lease has raised over $400,000 – a figure that’s likely to hit half a million dollars this year,” said event organiser Jane Wightman, a National Administrator for Lend Lease.

Impressively, Jane has swum in every one of the 24 hour swimming marathons that Lend Lease has entered and plans to keep going for many more.

“We’ve met so many incredible people through the 24 Hour Mega Swim for MS and I’m so proud that with the help of Lend Lease and other companies like AE Smith, that we’ve been able to make such a contribution to MS Australia,” Jane said.

“Congratulations to Jane and Lend Lease for their outstanding commitment to helping MS Australia over such a long period of time,” said Doug Smith, General Manager AE Smith Construction Victoria. “Your generosity demonstrates the like-mindedness of our two organisations when it comes to helping people.”
