Did you know that drowning surpasses all other causes of death among children ages 14 and under in California, while LA County has the highest rate of near-drowning of any county in the state? The Coast 2 Coast Swim Challenge was created to heighten awareness of these facts and combat this problem locally.

This one-of-a-kind aquatic fundraiser ensures 100% of the funds raised by swimmers provide FREE swim lessons to those who apply and meet the criteria. This past year C2C also began a relationship with ‘One with the Water,’ an organization that teaches disabled and/ or terminally ill children and adults how to swim.
