Gary on the Street: Everyone Can Swim!

According to the USA Swimming Foundation, 70 percent of African-Americans lack basic swim skills. In an effort to change that alarming statistic, Safe Kids Worldwide teamed up with Black Kids Swim to produce a Gary on the Street video featuring African-American kids who swim competitively. Black Kids Swim is an organization dedicated to increasing the number of competitive African-American swimmers. In this video, you’ll hear kids talk enthusiastically about what swimming means and why it’s important for all kids to learn how to swim.
