JCMF Children’s Charities Hosts Ribbon Cutting at Float 4 Life Swim Center Opening

On July 10, JCMF (Joshua Collingsworth Memorial Foundation; joshtheotter.org) Children’s Charities officially opened the doors of their Float 4 Life swim center with a ribbon-cutting ceremony conducted by the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce. The celebration included an auction, balloon art provided by Shades the Clown, a bounce house from Let’s Party Inflatables, and live broadcasting through KFRX.

Founded by Blake and Kathy Collingsworth, JCMF Children’s Charities is ecstatic to reveal this state-of-the-art swim center and national training facility. In line with JCMF’s mission to stop avoidable drowning deaths, Float 4 Life will teach and promote infant and toddler water safety.

Float 4 Life was made possible by JCMF Children’s Charities and the Cooper Branch of the YMCA. The new facility will provide training and accreditation to instructors from across the U.S. JCMF Children’s Charities and the Michael Phelps Foundation announced their partnership in May 2017, and both seem hopeful that swim spas could be a benefit to both early childhood water safety and competitive swimmers.

Drowning is the most common cause of accidental death for children under the age of five, so JMCF Children’s Charities tries to educate parents worldwide about water safety.
