Every day in the United States, a child drowns. Children of color are three times more likely than white children to visit an emergency room or even lose their lives because of a swim accident.

Beyond Barriers Athletic Foundation (BBAF) promotes healthy lifestyles, improves personal safety, and adds structure for lifelong achievement by providing scholarships for aquatic programs helping underserved youth.

You can make a difference - a big splash! - in the lives of our neighborhood children in need by helping us reach our goal, to provide 10,000+ swim lessons this year.  Your gift saves lives & changes lives!

CAMPAIGN UPDATE:  Thank you to all our donors, including those who have given offline, bringing us closer to our goal. Total raised = $18,000

All size splashes (gifts) are welcome and needed. Thank you!

You're making a difference in the lives of underserved children ~

not only will summers never be the same, but you've provided them a path to succeed in the pool, the classroom and beyond!

“For our family, it has not just been an opportunity, it has been a ladder of opportunities....little did I know what magical powers swimming would bring into our lives. Kate grew in confidence and built endurance that helped her self-esteem...all thanks to the wonderful people at Beyond Barriers Athletic Foundation and donors like you that make this possible for families like mine."  Erica, BBAF Mom
