YMCA Water Safety programs will save lives this summer, but we need your support!

At the Y, we're looking ahead to summer as we celebrate Water Safety Month in May. Did you know that:

  • More children ages 1-4 die from drowning than ANY other cause of death
  • For children ages 5-14, drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury death
  • 80% of children who drown were under supervision of some kind

Our Y provides life-saving safety-around-water programming for children and adults at low or no cost to many community members - but we need your help to make it happen!

Support from donors is crucial to help us provide this life-saving programming.
