We’re teaching future swimmers.
This year, Horizons at St. Richard's is raising money to benefit a future generation of swimmers.
Learning to swim is an important skill to know, but is especially important for our students. Drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death among children and African-American children between the ages of 5-4 are three times more likely to drown than children of other races and ethnicities.
Every summer, Horizons provides swim lessons three days each week because we know that swimming is a valuable, lifesaving skill. More than that - swimming is an opportunity that many Horizons students don't have. We are happy share the joy of swimming with students from pre-kindergarten to eighth grade.
Horizons at St. Richard's exists because of the generosity of individuals, corporations, and organizations who donate to support our work. Together, we are giving children in Indianapolis the ability to reach their fullest potential. Our summer program is 100% self-funded. Horizons receives in-kind contributions from St. Richard’s Episcopal School, including use of facilities, equipment, bookkeeping and accounting services, but Horizons is financially independent from the School. Horizons is included in St. Richard’s 501(c)(3) not-for-profit tax status. All contributions are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
