I am heartbroken over the news today. I feel like I need to do something beyond just talking with my son and his friends about water safety.
I have an idea , but would need some help.
I want to offer a beach/water safety class for free to the kids 11 and older of rogers park. To encourage them to come we would offer them a coupon to a local business for a free ice cream or something , if they complete the class and pass a quiz.
I could teach and design the class, with help from lifeguards or some other knowledgable person.
We would need a place for the class, and local businesses to donate.
What do you think? Can we do this?

  • JeanneRP, this is an excellent idea. I suggest all school age children be included. Children need to understand facts about Lake Michigan and water safety at a young age. The junior life guard program at Loyola is for children 8 and up.

    That can pass a physical test.
