How Your Pool Filter Pack Purchase Helps Save Lives

Drowning is a silent epidemic that claims the lives of too many children each year. According to the CDC, drowning stands as the leading cause of death among children aged 1-4. Globally, drowning is the third leading cause of unintentional injury death, accounting for 7% of all injury-related fatalities. For children aged 5-14, it remains the second leading cause of unintentional injury. Thankfully, there is a way to help stop these unintentional deaths. The best way to prevent childhood drowning is by teaching children to swim.

A Wave of Change: The Every Child A Swimmer Program and The Florida Swims Foundation

The Every Child a Swimmer initiative is at the forefront of this battle, offering grants for swim lessons to financially qualifying families and pushing for legislation that would require schools to provide parents with water safety information and resources for swim lessons. This legislation, already adopted in Georgia, Arkansas, and Florida, does not mandate swim lessons but emphasizes the parental responsibility to teach their children to swim.

The Florida Swims Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to teaching vital swimming skills to children throughout Florida, promoting safety, enjoyment, and inclusivity in aquatic recreation. The Florida Swims Foundation champions the Every Child A Swimmer Program by putting donations for swim lessons back into the local communities from which they originated. Money sent to the Florida Swims Foundation, earmarked for the Every Child A Swimmer Program, is matched by the International Swimming Hall of Fame, doubling the funds and impact that your donation makes.
