KEEN, Kids Enjoy Exercise Now, is a national, nonprofit, volunteer-led organization that provides one-to-one recreational opportunities for children and young adults with developmental disabilities, at no cost to their families and caregivers. KEEN's mission is to foster the self-esteem, confidence, skills and talents of its athletes through non-competitive activities, and ultimately allowing young people facing even the most significant challenges to meet their individual goals.

Do you know how to swim or enjoy being in the water? Are you interested in helping kids with special needs learn the basics? This is the event for you!

Volunteers are paired up with a KEEN athlete to help get them past any sensitivity issues of getting in the water. We make sure that the swimmers keep their heads above water, connect with the coach, stay safe, and most importantly, have fun! The pool is stocked with plenty of inflatable shimshams - balls, noodles, toys, etc to help athletes take part in different activities in the pool. Volunteers are welcome to use the lap pool or join the other volunteers for a quick bite after the event!
