Today, an exciting new initiative was announced by National Swimming Pool Foundation. A 10-year campaign, Step Into Swim, was launched, in an effort to improve health, reduce healthcare costs, and reduce drowning. The campaign will initially partner with nine organizations that teach children, adults, and minority populations to swim. Step Into Swim seeks donations and sponsors. It’s first event , the Step Into Swim Congress will kick off on October 10, in Norfolk, Virginia, just prior to the World Aquatic Health Conference. The National Swimming Pool Foundation issued a White Paper that explains how teaching more people to swim is imperative. The white paper is attached, along with a press release that was distributed to mainstream media. A separate press release was issued to industry trade. You may request a copy of that from me. Learn more about the partner organizations and donate or sponsor the cause at www.StepIntoSwim.org.
Please, read the release and the White Paper, and take the first step to get more people swimming.
