Our 6th annual World Swim Day event was one for the books! Swimmers from all over the world went for a swim and spent time reflecting on their love of the water.
This year our expert coaches create five unique World Swim Day-themed workouts in the MySwimPro app. Swimmers of all levels came together during World Swim Day weekend, logging thousands swim workouts and raising funds for water safety organizations!
Improving Water Safety Education
World Swim Day is about more than going for a swim. It’s also about raising awareness for drowning and coming together to support learn-to-swim organizations.
This year, 100% of the proceeds from our 2023 World Swim Day gold medal sales and YouTube fundraiser will be donated to the Swim Strong Foundation.
Since 2007, Swim Strong’s programming has helped more than 46,000 people stay safe and learn to swim. Their programs provide essential water safety education, helping swimmers of all levels improve their skills and reduce their risk of drowning in pools, lakes, rivers and oceans.
If you purchased a medal, thank you for your support!
