THE STORY:

YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit wrote -

Detroit Swims (TM) was started by the Y with the goal to ensure that all children in Detroit have the opportunity to learn to swim. 

The Need: In the city of Detroit, 70% of children cannot swim, and are almost three times more likely to drown. Many low-income children do not own a swim suit, can’t afford swim lessons, and have never been in a swimming pool. No child should fear the water. $100 helps keep a child safe for life. 

The Solution: The Y's Detroit Swims program is reaching out to schools and community pools to run our unique swim program. We eliminate every barrier that there is to learning to swim: we provide swim wear, towels, transportation, certified lifeguards and swim instructors, and all the encouragement a child needs to master a new skill. 

The Goal: To annually raise $200,000 to teach 2,000 kids to swim and be safe around water. We've already taught almost 7,000 children to date - and your support will help us ensure that every single child in the City of Detroit has the opportunity to learn to swim!

Because watching my daughter volunteer here is impactful beyond words. This is so that 5 more kids can learn to swim this next season, that otherwise would not have had the chance. 4 months ago
