Thanks to your support, we raised $3,000 to support swimming charities around the world! All funds were donated to support water safety and learn-to-swim programs:
World Swim Day is celebrated on the fourth Saturday of October every year. The holiday promotes living a healthy lifestyle through swimming and raises awareness for the importance of water safety. World Swim Day events are independently organized around the world for swimmers of all ages. There are over 100 million fitness swimmers in the world, and yet there are over 4 billion people who do not know how to swim.
World Swim Day was initially conceived within MySwimPro, Inc. to increase participation in swimming and promote water safety inclusive of geography, language, and skills. In the first year, World Swim Day saw participation from swimmers in over 100 countries and funds were raised for three learn-to swim non-profit organizations. The international event is more than a virtual swim, but also serves as an opportunity to connect a global community that shares a mutual passion for the water.
World Swim Day is supported by MySwimPro, the largest digital community of swimmers in the world. The international event is also supported by globally-minded companies with shared values that include empowering a healthy lifestyle through swimming and promoting water safety. We hope World Swim Day continues to inspire and empower people around the world to be active in the water.
Supporting World Swim Day means you share our passion for the water. You believe in humanity’s equal right to learn how to swim and wish to empower people around the world to be active in the water.
Your organized swim should be during the weekend of World Swim Day: October 23, 24, 25.
We recommend any body of water that is safe to swim in and one that is being monitored by a lifeguard and trained professional on land.
Anyone in the global swimming community. Your swim team, friends, family and anyone you’d like to invite!
