Making Halloween Un-Spooky with Carmel Swim Academy

You know making sure your child is safe in the water is one of the most important things you can do for your family. Amidst the jack-o-lanterns, ghosts, and witches that mark the Halloween season, nothing is scarier than your family being unsafe around the water. Drowning is the leading cause of injury-related death in young children, but participation in formal swim lessons can reduce that risk by 88%. Will you make a gift to help increase opportunities to these critical programs to more central Indiana children? Any amount you can donate will help us complete construction on the new pool (set to open in the coming months!) and outfit it for expanded programs.
