Our “Fun Run” will bring the community together from our local First
Responders, to our Foster & At Risk Youth as well our sponsors and
volunteers. The FUN RUN is "RACING" towards highlighting the challenges
water has on our children. Today drowning is one of the leading causes of
death and we aim to change that by helping foster youth and children at risk
learn water safety and the love of water through swimming lessons and
opportunities to participate in fun, healthy water activities.
In addition, we are advocating that all children within Foster & Child Welfare
be required to take swim/water survival lessons upon entering the "System", today 79% of foster youth do not know how to swim. Together with our charity partner Urban Surf 4 Kids & Every Kid Swims we will provide swim & water therapy sessions for these children NOW.
