Frieda is a 3rd grade girl who had always wanted to learn how to swim. Frieda was always very anxious around water, whether it was at a pool or a lake. Brenda, Frieda’s mom, had always tried to get her to swim but Frieda was not ready at the time. Luckily, with support from the Michael Phelps Foundation and our organization (Boys & Girls Club of Bellevue) we were able to provide Frieda with the opportunity to learn how to swim. The Michael Phelps Foundation gave Frieda the opportunity to learn how to swim and helped her overcome her fear of getting into water and not being able to swim. – Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue
