We teach kids how to swim. Around the world, 388,000 people drown every year – that’s 44 preventable deaths every hour. We work with partners and communities to distribute life jackets and teach kids lifesaving skills to stay afloat.
Our sports clinics keep kids in the game. Each year, 1.35 million children are seen in ERs for sports-related injuries. Our sports clinics teach coaches, parents and young athletes how to avoid concussions and other serious sports injuries.
We help kids use helmets the right way. Helmets can reduce the risk of severe brain injuries by 88 percent. We host hundreds of Bike to School Day events across the country to teach kids the importance of wearing a helmet and getting the right fit.
