Each year, more than 3,400 people drown in the U.S., including more than 700 children under the age of 14. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 70 percent of African-Americans, 60 percent of Latinos and 40 percent of Caucasians have little to no swimming ability.

Phillips 66 and the USA Swimming Foundation want to educate parents, communities and civic leaders about the importance of learning to swim. Information will be provided on swimming and water safety resources available to area residents.
