It’s hot in Ohio. The pools open up for the season this weekend, and everyone (including my kids) is ready to dive right in. We have our first pool party tomorrow and then we are off to Orlando for a weeklong vacation on Monday. Swimming is at the forefront of our minds, and I’m more excited than ever for pool season.
I’m looking forward to watching Luke and Eden in the pool, without a swim instructor to test their water skills. We have been with Goldfish Swim School for weekly swim lessons for more than two years now, and they still look forward to every weekly 30-minute session. I know how fortunate my children are. I didn’t have the same opportunity as a child, and I know many other children do not have access to crucial swim lessons.
That’s why I’m so excited to discuss an important fundraiser called “Float it Forward”.
At our local Goldfish Swim School, the staff strives every day to help children be safer in and around the water while building the confidence and skills they need to make waves in life.
But, their mission doesn’t stop there.
They know there is still so much work to be done to ensure more children learn the importance of water safety, which is why they are partnering with the USA Swimming Foundation in support of their Make A Splash initiative. This fundraising initiative will go directly to supporting children across the country learn to swim – children who might not otherwise have the opportunity! So cool!
Drowning is the number one cause of injury-related death for children ages one to four. Every dollar put towards the USA Swimming Foundation’s Make A Splash initiative aids in their mission to change this scary statistic. Every dollar helps a child build their knowledge, skills and confidence while having fun and being safer in and around the water.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and consider being a part of this important mission. The goal is large…$1,000,000 raised by 2024. But it’s so crucial as together we can all make waves, give back and save lives!
