Swim Strong successfully held the Water Safety Awareness Event in May 2018Emily lennon
Swim Strong has been hosting a celebrating Water Safety Awareness event for 6 years.
This year we were excited to reach more than 200 families who learned many new skills and have more understanding about the benefits and dangers of water from inside their very own homes to the great outdoors. We invited 2X Olympian Marko Blazevski and Patterson College Swim Coach Vera Blazevska to give free swimming lessons and share their experiences to inspire kids to love swimming and set (achieve) new goals. Thanks to our partner, the FDNY for providing lifesaving CPR training as well.
We would like to thank our fabulous sponsors for supporting our event, which will allow us to give more free swim lessons to poor and underserved children.
EVERYone should enjoy and be safe in and around the water!
It’s not too late to support this event! Your donation will help more children who need them receive free swim lessons.
