LAKE CITY, AR (Safe Swim Foundation) – Diamond National USA Miss Arkansas Junior Teen Elayna Russell has announced that she will promote SAFE Swim Foundation as she competes in Miss Diamond National USA in July 2022.
“What we do is so, so very important,” said Alyssa Burks, Project Coordinator for SAFE Swim Foundation. “So important that Elayna is taking our foundation with her as her platform to her national pageant in July! So happy to have her promoting our foundation as she competes for Miss Diamond National USA!”
Russell’s platform, Splashes of Sunshine, will promote drowning awareness and the importance of survival swim lessons. She met with Burks and SAFE Swim Foundation Founder Terri Mommsen recently to discuss a fundraising game plan for the foundation. Events will be announced over the next year as plans are solidified.
“With all of the lakes and rivers in our area, drowning is a very serious issue for adults, but especially infants,” explained Russell. “…with SAFE Swim Foundation, they want to be able to provide session scholarships to children for free. I immediately fell in love with this foundation and decided to work alongside these amazing people with helping promote safety around water.”
Every dollar raised by SAFE Swim Foundation goes toward providing survival swim lessons at no cost to local children.
