The Make a Splash Initiative
When USA Olympic swimmer Cullen Jones isn’t competing or training, he’s advocating for water safety. After nearly drowning at the age of five, Cullen overcame his fear of water to win a gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. In 2009, Cullen and the USA Swimming Foundation launched its Make a Splash Tour, presented by Phillips 66. The Make a Splash Initiative is targeted towards children and aims to provide the lifesaving tools and training for every child in America to learn to swim.
