Did you know that drowning is the #1 cause of accidental death for children under 5?

  • Children drown in pools, bathtubs, rivers & lakes, even buckets.
  • Drowning doesn’t discriminate—it affects all kinds of families.
  • Using multiple safety barriers and behaviors keeps kids safer.

It can happen in a moment.

Most of the time drowning doesn’t look or sound like it does in the movies. When 4-year-old Colin Holst drowned at a lifeguarded pool, his parents had no idea how quick and silent it could be.

At Colin’s Hope, we’ve taught nearly a million families what they need to know and do to prevent a similar tragedy. We are a trusted voice for drowning prevention in Texas and beyond.
