A Few Words About Us
The Foundation is the dream come true of two former swimmers whose lives have been shaped by the great sport of swimming and the people who have helped them along the way. Sergio Lopez Miro and Gustavo Calado both believe that by creating the Planet Swim Foundation they can give back to the sport and most importantly touch the lifes of many children by teaching them water safety and introducing them to a sport that could change their lives, the way it did for Sergio and Gus.
It all started in the summer of 2011, in partnership with Planet Swim LLC and the Metro Kids Konnection, Planet Swim Foundation taught swim lesson to 24 children for 8 weeks. After its inaugural season, our drowning prevention program is now live in all 3 major counties in NE Florida (Duval, Clay and St. Johns) and up to date, Planet Swim Foundation has awarded over $50,000 in swimming scholarships and benefited over nearly 1,000 children in our community.
