FOUNDER MESSAGE Despite what some believe, when I first entered the pool I did not swim the butterfly stroke gracefully from end-to-end. Like most of our program participants, I was afraid. In fact, I started swimming on my back because I didn’t like to get my face wet. And because I had someone to encourage me, who understood the importance of water safety, I developed a comfort level for the water. The more time I spent in the water, the stronger I became and my passion for the sport grew. Swimming provided me the opportunity to stay healthy, while learning about hard work, determination, and setting goals. I’m proud to say these principles guided me through my career and are the foundation to our im program. Over the past year, we were able to expand im in the Boys & Girls Clubs by 75%, introducing thousands of children to watersafety instruction, as well as healthy living and goal-setting education. We heard countless stories about the positive impact im had on communities, but one particular really sticks out that shows the type of impact your support is helping us achieve that I would like to share with you. Like the majority of our program participants, seven-year-old William from Knoxville,TN, came from a single parent household afraid of the water and unable to swim. At a young age, a cousin pushed William in the water unaware that he could not swim. The memory kept him out of the water for years. After hearing about im, William was determined to face his fears and signed up for the program at the Tennessee Valley Boys & Girls

Clubs. He learned lifesaving water skills and quickly progressed through the program. Quickly, the pool soon became a safe place for William to set and achieve his goals while overcoming a major fear. Around the same time, William’s father re-entered his life only to be taken away by a violent crime a couple miles from the club. But William showed great courage and prevalence and returned to the club three days later because he “wanted to swim”. His story inspired me and was a great reminder that it’s not just about swimming. It’s about being safe in the water, overcoming fears, and having a healthy life. After hearing his story, I was inspired and wanted to meet William and was able to with the help of our friends at the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and P&G. William boarded an airplane for the first time and arrived in Omaha during Olympic Trials. And it didn’t stop there; P&G flew him to the 2012 Olympics in London where he was able to see me swim my last race and I was able to present William with the “Confidence Award”. It was an incredible experience for us both. William is just one example of the thousands of kids we are successfully reaching through our relationship with Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Special Olympics International. Your support is making a big difference and for that I thank you.

For American Indian and Alaskan Native children, the fatal drowning rate is 2.3 times higher than for white children.

2 key barriers preventing children from learning to swim were fear of injury or drowning and the lack of parental encouragement

Youth drowning rates in ethically-diverse communities are 2-3 times higher than the national average

Of these unintended drowning deaths, 97% occurred in low and middle income countries Both China and India have particularly high drowning mortality rates and together contribute 43% of all drowning deaths worldwide

“

Smith has Downs Syndrome and is very stubborn. We both can get very frustrated and learning is always a challenge. We have tried other learn-to -swim classes but had negative experiences and little success. So, naturally we were apprehensive to enroll in the Young Athletes program. However, a friend of mine told me her child participated in safe and was seeing great results. We are so happy that we enrolled. We love the water.

S P E C I A L O LY M P I C S 2012 program highlights “What we learn through the program is that it’s not only learning to swim, but it’s also learning what to do outside of the pool. It’s learning that to be a good swimmer you have to watch your weight, you have to eat the right foods. It’s really a comprehensive program for our athletes to not only to become great swimmers but to lead more healthy and active lifestyles. I think the end product will be that we will have a lot more people in the pool, a lot more athletes swimming and being successful.” Peter Wheeler, Chief, Strategic Properties, Special Olympics

“For me, competition experience has been the greatest way to learn and improve as an athlete. Level Field Fund provides funding for promising athletes to have these necessary experiences which they might not have been able to afford otherwise. Last year, Level Field Fund enabled me, among others, to concentrate on being the best I can be without having to worry as much about funding my competition schedule and now I’m on the National Team and competing in my first Olympics.”
