We completed our inaugural event... WOW---- What A Success..!

Our mission of the Upstate Splash is: "Bringing swimmers together to save children's lives"

When it comes to swimmers and a great charitable cause, the phrase "get on board" doesn't come close because our swimmers " JUMPED ON IN ! " with support and enthusiasm above and beyond our expectations.

The money raised from our events will be used to give At-Risk kids, in our Upstate communities, an opportunity to receive free swim lessons to help prevent childhood drowning. As swimmers, we know the necessity and importance of water safety and the Upstate Splash wants to raise awareness of childhood drowning and to help prevent this from happening to children in the Upstate.

Thank you to each and every one of our swimmers; You Are Awesome!!!

Special thanks goes out to our hosting location and support teams: Devil's Fork State Park/Department of Natural Resources/Duke Power

Upstate Splash

The Upstate Splash is a nonprofit corporation. All proceeds from our events go towards teaching at-risk youth in our communities to learn how to swim. The money raised allows our swim facility partners to offer swim lesson scholarships helping our youth to learn how to swim as a first step in preventing childhood drowning and to bring awareness towards water safety.
