Making Waves of Change! We’re Teaming Up With Every Child A Swimmer for a Life-Saving, Life-Changing Splash-tacular Partnership!
At Goldfish Swim School, we’ve always been passionate about nurturing a love for swimming. Our mission to change the startling statistics surrounding drowning and turn little swimmers into confident and safe water enthusiasts has always been our driving force. With our state-of-the-art facilities, dedicated instructors and proven curriculum, we’ve been making waves in communities around North America since 2006.
In the spirit of going Above & Beyond, our Goldfish Swim School family is absolutely thrilled to partner with Every Child a Swimmer to make waves of change in the swimming world!
Founded by the renowned International Swimming Hall of Fame, Every Child a Swimmer is on a mission to provide swimming lessons to children who may not have had the chance to experience the joy that safe swimming brings.
Fueled by a mom on a mission, Every Child a Swimmer has blossomed into a truly swimpressive life-changing (and life-saving!) program. ECAS program manager, Casey McGovern, tragically lost her daughter, Edna, to drowning in 2009. Within their final moments together, Casey promised Edna that she would make it her lifes mission to not let another family go through this experience. Casey has kept that promise for nearly 14 years, continuing to fight each day for drowning prevention, and working with organizations like Goldfish to help make every child a swimmer.
“I am humbled that I have been given this opportunity to use my pain for a much larger purpose.
Drowning is Preventable!
I believe that by collaborating with incredible organizations like Goldfish Swim School, we will help to make Every Child a Swimmer”
– Casey McGovern
While no doubt difficult to share and re-live, Casey continues to make Ednas story heard, and fights to prevent other families from feeling that pain. Thanks to her efforts, and the incredible mission of Every Child a Swimmer, well have the opportunity to provide a truly GOLDEN experience to children in need across North America!
Well also join Every Child a Swimmers crusade to create laws and legislation to require water safety conversations in public schools – raising awareness of the importance of water safety, the startling statistics, and the layers of drowning prevention. To date, Every Child a Swimmer laws have passed in Florida, Georgia and Arkansas, and we are proud to help champion their efforts across North America!
