Water Awareness Campaign
When it comes to fun in and around the water, it’s never too early for swimmers to know what and what not to do. That’s why the St. Charles Park District developed a variety of awareness programs and activities designed to reinforce the “Swimming Safe Saves Lives” message with the Pauly D Foundation. It’s a sad statistic, but drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury-related deaths for children ages 1 to 14. Teaching children to swim is a vital skill for drowning prevention.
