We’re determined to prevent childhood drowning in our community.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death in children under 12. At the Y, we believe that we should not leave a child's safety in and around water to chance. The Y provides free basic water safety and swimming skills to the children at greatest risk – primarily those of minority and low-income households.

With your $50 gift, two children at risk of drowning will learn the life-saving skill of swimming through the YMCA Community Swim Academy.
