Did you know...

Richmond was voted the "Best River Town" by Outside Magazine, yet 50% of the population doesn't know how to swim.

How you can help

SwimRVA wants every child to learn at least the basics of swimming, to save his or her life. Our vision is that by the year 2020, every second grader will know how to swim. Since 2012, we've provided free sessions of seven swimming lessons to over 6,300 second graders from Richmond, Virginia, with over 1,400 being served in the 2016-2017 school year alone.
