Olympic Gold Medalist Simone Manuel Helps to Provide Free Swim Lessons for Every Student at LeBron James’ I Promise School

GBN just learned from becauseofthemwecan.com about Olympic Gold Medalist Swimmer Simone Manuel‘s recent visit to LeBron James‘ “I Promise” school in Akron, OH.

We are happy to report that as an ambassador for the USA Swimming Foundation, Manuel did not just talk the talk, but plans to swim the swim! She is helping provide free swim lessons to every student at I Promise during a week-long camp in June of this year.

  1. Great! Good for Simone because so many children of color don’t know how to swim and every summer you hear about swimming tragedies. Only 2 members of my family can swim and that may have been different if this sort of program existed.

  2. Hello GBN! Do you mind if I share a link to this post on our Women’s History blog? We have featured Manuel​ and would love to include this post.

  3. This is great because so many people take the ability to swim for granted but in my family only 2 people can swim. Every summer there are swimming tragedies and this could help.
