During the early days at AquaMobile, one of our clients missed two consecutive swimming lessons for her two sons. Later, we learned that the two boys had been in a boating accident with their father. Her husband drowned, but the two young boys survived. She told us, ‘I credit your lessons with saving my boys’ lives.’ (story taken from Diana’s interview here)
This story is a sobering reminder that swimming is more than a fun exercise. In fact, 65% of all drowning incidents happen in a pool owned by the child’s family. Learning to swim is a valuable, life-saving skill that can keep your child safe. We’ve always strived to prevent drowning one lesson at a time, but we’ve decided that it’s time to make bigger splashes this year.
We have one simple goal: we want to see 1 million more kids swimming in the pool.
