About IWSF Tread-A-Thon® 2022

The purpose of the IWSF Tread-A-Thon® on May 15th is to celebrate 
International Water Safety Day! 


The International Water Safety Foundation is focused on raising awareness about the global drowning pandemic, building a culture of learning to swim, and preventing drownings.

We aim to raise funds for drowning interventions.


Treading water: tread by yourself, as a team, or host an event and invite others!


Individuals, teams, and organizations raise awareness by first setting a date to tread water or joining an already established campaign. 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 a flat donation in support of preventing drownings online on your personalized donation page.

Participants float, tread, and raise awareness. 

The International Water Safety Foundation is proud to support you in the fight against drowning and in building a culture of learning to swim. Raising funds online is easy to do through our online system. Participating teams agree to make a contribution of 50% of the gross revenue to the International Water Safety Foundation from their Tread-A-Thon®. The International Water Safety Foundation supports drowning prevention intervention projects like that of SWIM Cambodia.
