Nathan 1, Rip Current 0

Nathan, just six years old, remembered what his swim instructor at the Y taught him when he was swept out by a rip current last year. In the video below, Nathan and his mother share their story of how he was able to stay afloat until help could arrive.

Every day at the Y, we teach life-saving skills that will keep kids safe in the water. Children not only learn to swim, they also have fun, learn healthy habits and build confidence at the same time!

Your gift to our annual giving campaign ensures that we can provide life-saving aquatic instruction to children in our community who might otherwise not be able to participate.
