The USA Swimming Foundation announced today that in its first 10 years, more than 5 million children have received the lifesaving gift of swim lessons through its 850-member Make a Splash Local Partner network.Through the Make a Splash initiative, the USA Swimming Foundation provides the opportunity for every child in America to learn to swim – regardless of race, gender or financial circumstances. The USA Swimming Foundation partners with learn-to-swim providers, community-based water safety advocates, and national organizations to provide swimming lessons and educate children and their families on the importance of learning how to swim.“The impact Make a Splash has had over the past 10 years is astounding. We are so proud of the progress we have made and the impact we are having through our partners across the country” said Debbie Hesse, Executive Director of the USA Swimming Foundation. “We know there is still a long way to go as we strive to ensure every child has the skills necessary to be safer in, on, and around the water; and 5 million children learning to swim is a significant step in the right direction.”  Read more by clicking the link below:
