2014 Drowning Prevention 5K

Drowning Prevention 5K

“Drowning is the #1 cause of preventable death. Nothing is more preventable than drowning!”

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are an estimated 388,000 annual drowning deaths worldwide.* The WHO believes the global estimate may be significantly underestimating the actual public health problem related to drowning.**

The Drowning Prevention 5K raises funds and awareness for aquatic safety, celebrates the ocean and environment, as well as honors those we have lost.
