2nd Annual Social Justice Tread-A-Thon®

Raise Awareness. Speak Up. Tread.

The purpose of the Social Justice Tread-A-Thon® (September-December) is to encourage participants to become advocates for social change and to discuss racial injustices. Such injustices are inclusive of the drowning disparity in the United States and throughout the world.

-75% of funds raised by Tread-A-Thon's® go to your organization and the remaining 25% of the funds are donated to the International Water Safety Foundation and Diversity In Aquatics to help in their efforts of curving drowning and increasing equality-

-Many teams and organizations are treading for 8 minutes and 46 seconds.  The significance of 8 minutes and 46 seconds is to remember the police brutality against George Floyd-
