OPEN WATER WORKS + MICHAEL PHELPS FOUNDATION
Every two minutes across the globe, a person drowns. Open Water Works, in partnership with The Michael Phelps Foundation, is working hard to reduce these numbers. Water Safety is our #1 priority.
We have made it our mission to help raise money to support the amazing work of the Michael Phelps Foundation to make swimming "successful, healthy, fast, fun and safe".
