Thursday, May 6 is Big Day of Giving and our Y is focusing on the kids that are unprepared to have a safe and fun summer: help them #Reach15 by reaching for your 15 for the Y. Here's how and why:

According to the CDC, one in five people who die from drowning are children under 14 and younger. For every child who dies from drowning, another five receive emergency department care for nonfatal injuries. On this Big Day of Giving, your gift of $15, $115, $515, or $1,015 will help children of the River City region reach age 15 and beyond by learning to swim and be safe around water through YMCA swim lessons. Make a bigger impact by making your gift during the 15:00 hour (3pm) on May 6!

Follow our social media pages for Safety Around Water videos during Big Day of Giving that can help you prepare, or even save, the children in your life!
