About Tread-A-Thon

Tread-A-Thons™ are made up of teams, organizations and individuals who raise awareness and donations toward fighting the drowning pandemic by treading water.  Individuals can join an already established campaign. While teams and organizations have the option to join an established campaign or contact us to host their own.  Participating is as easy as dedicating a practice or part of your practice.

Participants float, tread, and raise awareness! 

Raising funds online is easy to do through our online system. Treaders ask for donations from family, friends, neighbors, and businesses while making them aware of the toll drowning takes on children and families globally. Donors make donations in support of preventing drownings online on your personalized donation page.  Half of the donations raised go to your team and half go to the International Water Safety Foundation to help support drowning prevention intervention projects around the world. Click here to join a current tread-a-thon!

Host a Tread-A-Thon

Hosting a Tread-A-Thon is as easy as dedicating a practice or part of your practice.  We invite age group, Masters, summer, youth league, triathletes, learn-to-swim, water aerobics and any other water-based program to support the IWSF cause by hosting a Tread-A-Thon.
