Healthy Kids Through Swimming

 

It is our vision to create "Healthy Kids" by enriching the lives of those who would never be able to afford high-quality swim lessons through physical fitness and nutrition education. By offering swim lessons, we can help save their lives with survival skills.  By teaching healthy eating, we promote lifestyle changes for children that are at high risk for obesity.   

The goal of the Gift of Swimming scholarship program is to directly impact the children in distressed communities by making a positive difference in their lives and their family’s lives. Secondary goals are to produce healthier bodies, minds and spirits by improving their self confidence, self-esteem and pride.  The community as a whole benefits when children learn team skills and good decision-making.
