Help Prevent Drownings
Fundraising Page Image

I was astonished to learn that drowning is the #1 cause of unintentional injury related death for children under 5 and a leading cause for ages 1–14, yet drowning is preventable.  Texas has already lost 53 children to this FATAL, yet preventable death.  That’s why this year, I’m teaming up with Colin’s Hope, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that creates and supports programs that aid in preventing children from drowning. 

On August 16, I will be participating in Colin’s Hope Got2Swim Lake Austin 10K!  This will be an epic challenge both physically and mentally as I’ll be attempting a solo 6.2 mile open water swim.  As part of my motivation, I will proudly swim in celebration of Bria, a beautiful 4 year old girl who passed from drowning on Memorial Day, 2005 in Houston, Texas.     

I hope that you will join me and make a donation that goes directly to programs that prevent children from drowning.  Donations of any amount would help me reach my goal of $700.  Together, we will do this in honor of all of the children lost to a fatal drowning and those who have survived a non-fatal drowning.

Thank you so much,
