Did you know 10 people drown each day in the United States? One life is too many, so it’s time to take action!
TAC explains, “Created by the USA Swimming Foundation, Make-a-Splash’s initiative is to save children’s lives through swim lessons. Through this program, eligible swimmers in the Triangle can register for swim lessons at a free or reduced rate.”
