An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until May 5, 2018

Did you know drowning is the second-leading cause of accidental death for children ages 1 to 14? Help us lower this statistic by supporting Ballantyne’s Safety Around Water Drive benefiting the YMCA of Greater Charlotte. Donate new or used swim gear including swimsuits, goggles, beach towels and spray sunscreen at Sara’s YMCA April 28 through May 5. Swimsuits of all sizes will be accepted. Can’t make it to the Y, but still want to support the cause? Donate online to make a difference!

Safety Around Water is a free water safety outreach program provided to low-income youth living in local apartment communities. Certified YMCA Swim Instructors and YMCA Lifeguards educate young residents about water safety issues through instruction and awareness-building. Safety Around Water gives children, at the greatest risk, the opportunity to learn basic water safety and swimming skills.

If your office is interested in supporting this cause, contact our Community Director.
