• Kids Swimming for Kids: Virtual Program

    The summer swim season is upon us and although the season itself is very different this year than ever before, the Shelley Glover Foundation and Kids Swimming for Kids is still in need of your support to raise money for children in our community to have the opportunity to learn how to swim and be safe in the water while experiencing the joy of summer swimming.

    For the safety of the swimmers and their families, we know that your neighborhood pool may not be running an official Kids Swimming for Kids event but your child can still choose to swim laps on their own or keep track of their laps during a practice this summer. And you, your family and friends can sponsor them. You are able to make a donation directly on the Shelley Glover Foundation website on your pools KSK Pools page.

    We greatly appreciate your generosity and willingness to help Shelley’s vision of providing all of our community’s children the opportunity to participate in swimming and learning to do so safely with our partnership with the Boys and Girls Club and the Goodman Community Pool.
