Swim Strong Foundation





Long Island City, NY December 5, 2012 -

Swim Strong Foundation is a 501c volunteer, not for profit organization, that is saving and changing lives through the great sport of swimming.

At this time of year Swim Strong Foundation is holding its Holiday Raffle (drawing 12/20 at the Long Island City / Astoria Chamber of Commerce BREAKFAST FOR CHAMPIONS of Tourism). The proceeds go to start the funding of our 2013 scholarship program for families who are unable to afford our swim lessons. In 2012 Swim Strong was able to provide 100 scholarships! In 2013 our goal will be 125 (or $30,000 in services). The prize is $1,500.00 and the tickets are $10 each; book of 10 for $100 and two books for $180 (yes, two free tickets!)

The organization has also arranged a 15% discount coupon for any Modell’s in NYC; good through 12/24. [ GET COUPON ]

Since Fall 2009 Swim Strong has provided 1,858 lessons with over 662 scholarships. That’s over 1,800 people who have become water safe and gained better swimming skills! 14 children joined community based swim teams; 18 joined US Swim Clubs; 8 joined their high school teams; 3 joined their college teams; 2 joined a US Diving team; 23 became certified lifeguards; 2 were able to pass the required swim test to enlist in the Coast Guard; one enlisted in the Navy; one became a commercial diver. The organization has also worked with a number of adults, some who wanted to overcome their fear of water, others who wanted to become stronger swimmers to better their triathlon results, or simply be able to incorporate swimming into their daily exercise regimes.

The organization save lives by offering affordable swim programs from the most beginning levels through competitive. We are stopping the drowning.

Swim Strong changes lives by:

  • Educating families about the importance of exercise coupled with good nutrition to avoid type 2 diabetes; leading to obesity.
  • Challenging children to learn the life lessons of commitment, goal setting self-discipline, persistency, team work and resiliency through competitive swimming. Lessons that transcend the pool and are applied in the school room all the way to the board room.
  • Inspiring strong swimmers to explore other water based sports such as water polo, synchro, surfing, rowing, kayaking, diving etc. some of which offer college scholarships.

The closest Queens location to Long Island City is the Flushing Meadows Aquatic Center. A copy of a brochure for  upcoming January programs is available.

Sandy hit Swim Strong program members hard. 75 families were displaced due to the storm. They organized commercial van loads of clothing; food and cleaning supplies which have been delivered to the communities of Howard Beach through Breezy Point…communities served by our programs out of Far Rockaway High School. Those families are beginning to come back now. Some completely lost their homes; others were flooded out and still some do not have power!

Donations, should be made prior to December 20th at: http://www.theswimstrongfoundation.org/donations.htm#
