Sharing the Power of Swimming
Formed in 2010, Planet Swim Foundation is a non-profit organization located in Jacksonville, FL that aims to promote the sport of swimming through education and safety by providing swim lessons scholarship to families with limited physical and financial access to both pools and water safety instruction.
In the summer of 2010, in partnership with Planet Swim LLC, Planet Swim Foundation became a project in action. Through Planet Swim LLC and very limited funds, the Metro Kids Konnection Foundation sent 27 of their children for an 8 week swim lesson program. Since then Planet Swim Foundation has helped hundreds of children in North East Florida.
The 2017 TYR JAX50 has been the most successful edition yet thanks to the Sponsors, Pro Swimmers, Clubs attending (almost 732 swimmers), Volunteers and all the individual donations.
