We are all ready for summer and hope you are too. Schools are letting out. Days are getting longer. And nothing sounds better than taking the kids out for a fun and refreshing swim, right?
Well, only so long as everyone can be pool safe, and that’s not always the case. Frighteningly, 70% of African-American children cannot swim. The same is true for 60% of Latino children and 40% of Caucasian children. But there are some wonderful people out there who are dedicating their time and efforts to, shall we say, turning the tides on this problem. And that’s why we want to give a shout out to Cullen Jones and everyone else involved with Make a Splash!
Cullen Jones is a really rad U.S. Olympic athlete who not only won gold, but is an ambassador for Make a Splash, a foundation dedicated to teaching kids to learn valuable swim safety in the water and even enjoy the experience. We’d explain, but they do a much better job in this news video.
If you want to know more about Make a Splash, you can find them here. And from all of us at Vivo, thanks for making pools across the country a safer and more fun place for kids!
