Join Colin’s Hope for The 10th Annual Colin’s Hope Got2Swim Lake Austin 10K!The Got2Swim is a solo, 2-person or 3-person open water swim that will begin at Lake Hills Park and finish at the 360 Bridge Park – Pennybacker Bridge. This epic swimming journey will raise incredible awareness and drowning prevention funds for Colin’s Hope. The swimmers will be accompanied by a water safety team including: a personal Water Guardian kayaker, life guards, and Lake Police.
Colin’s Hope was formed in 2008 after four-year-old Colin Holst tragically drowned in a public pool, with lifeguards on duty and family members present. Our mission is to raise water safety awareness to prevent children from drowning. Drowning is the #1 cause of accidental death for children under 5 and a leading cause for ages 1-14. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, for each fatal drowning incident, five more children receive emergency care for submersion injuries.1 While no-one is drownproof, drowning IS preventable.
Our major water safety programs and initiatives are held year-round and across the country. Contact us today to host an event in your community.
