– Endless Pools, Inc., the manufacturer of counter-current swimming pools for residential and commercial use, has teamed with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the world’s largest MS organization, to highlight the benefits of exercise during MS Awareness Week, March 10-17.
The company, with headquarters in the Philadelphia suburb of Aston, is sponsoring an email communication that the Society will send to half a million households with connections to the MS movement on March 10, kicking off “Seven Days of Action” – a week’s worth of fun, easy activities that anybody can take to boost awareness of multiple sclerosis and the movement to end it.

Endless Pools also sponsored a Society brochure calledExercise as Part of Everyday Life(.pdf). The 24-page brochure – written by Mary Harmon, a freelance writer who lives with MS – shows how all kinds of exercise, from swimming to yoga to martial arts, can improve physical and mental well-being in people with MS.
“We’ve had a presence for many years in the Society’s national magazine, so expanding this relationship is a natural next step,” said Mark Langan, Marketing Director for Endless Pools, Inc.
“We’re proud to have Endless Pools, Inc. be a part of movement to end MS,” said Joyce Nelson, President and CEO of the National MS Society.
Endless Pools, Inc., headquartered in Aston, Pa., a suburb of Philadelphia, was founded in 1988 by James Murdock to manufacture and sell counter-current swimming pools for residential and commercial use. Over the last 20 years, more than 10,000 Endless Pools have been sold and installed in over 50 countries. The 8’ x 15’, temperature-controlled Endless Pool can be installed virtually anywhere, indoors or out. The Endless Pool features an adjustable current that allows you to swim or exercise in place. The current is broad and deep, and is suitable to every swimming ability and therapy need. You can also set the temperature precisely, based on preferences and needs.
MS stops people from moving. The National MS Society exists to make sure it doesn’t. We help each person address the challenges of living with MS. In 2006 alone, through our home office and 50 state network of chapters, we devoted nearly $126 million to programs that enhanced more than one million lives. To move us closer to a world free of MS, the Society also invested more than $46 million to support 380 research projects around the world. We are people who want to do something about MS NOW. Join the movement atwww.nationalMSsociety.org. Studies show that early and ongoing treatment with an FDA-approved therapy can reduce future disease activity and improve quality of life for many people with multiple sclerosis. Talk to your health care professional and contact the National MS Society atwww.nationalMSsociety.orgor 1-800-344-4867 to learn about ways to help manage multiple sclerosis and about current research that may one day reveal a cure.
