I'm swimming for friends of swimmers trust. My main motivation is for the Learn to Swim initiatives that the trust supports. Through these initiatives water safety is promoted and kids from a young age can enjoy the empowerment that comes from swimming. Having lost a child in a swimming pool drowning I would love to see more and more of these initiatives coming to the fore to assist all parents in ensuring their children are able to swim from a young age. I have also worked in rural areas where kids walk to school having to cross rivers on their way. These type of initiatives, I believe, will assist kids in getting to school safely.
