Congratulations to Gia Wright, Founder of W3 Swim for being the WomensNet Mini Grant recipient.
W3 SWIM aims to inspire people in minority based communities to substantially use swimming in every aspect of their lives. Wright adds, “We believe that everyone should have equal access to aquatic resources and we are committed to educating all generations about swimming’s lifelong benefits.We hope to raise awareness and participation in aquatic sports and careers through our W3 SWIM podcast, apparel, educational presentations, and personal swim instruction, all of which we have gained experience in through our personal experiences. We want to help minority based teams connect to their communities and we want to educate families about the benefits and opportunities for academic and career growth through aquatic knowledge.”
The Mini Grant will be used by W3 Swim to fund opportunities to teach lessons and record footage for educational purposes. It will also help investing for more materials and supplies.
