Swim 4 Success came to Tulane University in March 2009, and since then, the program has taught hundreds of children how to swim. Our mission is to unite volunteerism and community resources to provide free swimming lessons to youth who would otherwise not have the access and to ensure that every child has the opportunity and available resources to learn the life-saving skill of swimming. By providing youth with life skills through swimming, Swim 4 Success empowers youth and enables them to become agents of change in their own communities.
When our swimmers graduate our program, they often seek other ways to stay active, whether it's in the pool or in another aspect of their community. Through this swimathon, we hope to raise enough funds to empower our graduates to maintain an active lifestyle and love for sports. Proceeds from this fundraiser will be used to sponsor each graduate's passions after they leave our program.
