Welcome to the 2nd Annual Lake Travis High School Swimming and Diving Swim Raiser PLEDGE PAGE.

WHEN MAKING A DONATION ON BEHALF OF A SWIMMER OR DIVER PLEASE INCLUDE THEIR NAME IN THE COMMENTS SECTION. PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED FOR THE HIGHEST EARNING SWIMMERS AND DIVERS.

 

The mission of Colin's Hope is to raise water safety awareness to prevent children from drowning. Drowning is the number 1 cause of accidental death for children under 5 and a leading cause for ages 1-14. While no-one is drownproof, drowning IS preventable.

 

The swimmers and divers will collect pledges from now through November 30th to donate to Colin's Hope, which is a Lake Travis area charity, in order to help support their mission throughout the greater Austin area. 

 

On November 21st the swimmers will dedicate their swim practice to Colin's Hope. They will swim 5000 yards during their 2 hour practice and all pledges received will be donated to Colin's Hope.

 

Colin's Story

Colin Holst was born on September 2, 2003 in Austin, Texas. He’d always been cautious around swimming pools and didn’t particularly like getting splashed by the older kids. But the year Colin was 4, something changed during his annual swimming lessons. He was brave and he tried hard and, much to his parents’ delight, his swimming began to improve. When Colin got his medal on the last day of his swim lessons in June, he let his dad take a picture of him…and his beaming smile on his goggled face showed how proud of himself he was. 

The very next day, Colin went with his family and some friends to a big pool that he’d never been to before. The kids in his group moved around the pool together in a clump, playing and splashing and ducking in and out of the water. And then, in an instant, Colin wasn’t with them. Time stood still as their eyes swept the pool looking for him, and then, only moments later, he was pulled from the shallow water unconscious and not breathing. Efforts to revive him at the pool were unsuccessful, and Colin died at the hospital the next day, having never opened his eyes again after his swim.  

Colin's family was shocked and amazed to learn that drowning is the number one cause of death for children under the age of 4!  Fueled by their desire to prevent such a tragedy from happening time and time again to other children, they founded Colin’s Hope to promote water safety in their community and to educate children, parents and lifeguards on drowning prevention.
