Learn to Swim Program

I'm beyond excited to share with you our exciting news.
The resort Miles' accident was at has gone above and beyond to put together a swim program for under privileged children to take swimming lessons.

A week from today 20 children in the Park City area will be given the opportunity to take swim lessons. Many of the children selected have never even been around water much less swimming. The children will take a 10 week course of water safety and swim lessons. Goggles, beach towels and public transportation are being provided for each child. At the end of the 10 weeks the children will earn a t-shirt and certificates for completing the course. Mark and I, along with the girls of course, will be attending as often as possible to watch and mentor the children and see their progress. We will for sure be there helping hand out the award at the end.

We are beyond thrilled that the resort has put together such a great cause in honor of our family and mostly our son Miles. Giving 20 children the life safety skill of swim lessons is an amazing gift and opportunity for each one of them. To think that we could potentially be saving the lives of 20 children is simply amazing.

The even better news is, depending on how well this goes, the resort may be doing this twice a year. Potentially saving 40 children's lives each year! There are simply no words to describe how ecstatic we are about this! BEST NEWS EVER!!!

Miles truly is touching the lives of so many still, without them even knowing it! Thank you Miles. We LOVE you son!!!
