Swim On Foundation: Raising Awareness of the Dangers of Drowning

    There’s no doubt families will want to be outdoors this summer and that often includes barbecues and other gatherings near water.  During the Covid pandemic, families installed and purchased a record number of pools.  But those gatherings can also be dangerous for young children.  Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death for children ages 1 to 4.  That’s why members of a local family are on a mission of swim education and safety.  As Nancy Pasternak reports, this summer they are focusing on vulnerable communities.
