Watch Joseph's Story
The skills and knowledge that Joseph learnt, could one day save his life. His story highlights the importance of swimming & water safety education.
In Australia, drowning remains one of the leading causes of preventable death in children.
SWIM KIDS Operation 10,000 is a joint fundraising initiative of UNCLE TOBYS and Royal Life Saving Society – Australia. The core focus of the program is to raise awareness about the importance of water safety and to fund free swimming and water safety courses for children who would otherwise miss out.
Joseph is 7 and lives in regional Australia with his Dad. He is just one of the less fortunate children that has not had access to swimming lessons. Nominated by Royal Life Saving Society – Australia, Joseph received a term of swimming and water safety lessons through Royal Life Saving’s Swim and Survive program. Watch how his story highlights the importance of swimming and water safety education for all Australian children.
We’re showing thousands of kids in Australia how to have fun and be safe in the water.
Our aim is a simple one – to get more kids swimming and enjoying the water safely.
With the support of Royal Life Saving Society – Australia and some of Australia’s best swimmers, we want to show kids how swimming can be a fun part of a healthy and active lifestyle. As well as this, we aim to boost the swimming skills of young Australians to help reduce the tragic number of drowning incidents that occur each year.
And, if we help to make a few Olympic swimmers in the process, then that is just a bonus!
