PHTA Forms Philanthropic Arm: The Champions Board


The Pool & Hot Tub Alliance (PHTA) has announced the formation of a philanthropic arm of their organization dedicated to raising awareness and funds for drowning prevention.

The Champions Board is a group of athletes, pool industry professionals, and philanthropists who will work closely with PHTA’s “Step Into Swim” initiative, which aims to help 1 million people learn how to swim, particularly children in underserved areas.

“I am so proud of these amazing volunteers who have all had aquatics be a part of their life in so many ways and have agreed to serve on The Champions Board,” said PHTA vice president of partnerships and development Rowdy Gaines. “We have Olympians, pool industry professionals, and entrepreneurs from all walks of life with a racial and geographic diversity that will make an instant impact on saving lives through educating and enriching those families and swim lesson providers around our country.”
