"For our sport to have a Foundation like the USA Swimming Foundation means so much to not only Olympic-level athletes, but also to every kid growing up in the sport of swimming.

Supporting a cause that has been such a huge part of my life is incredible and I hope, with continued support, we can inspire the next generation of Olympic athletes," says Olympic gold medalist, Ricky Berens.

Many thanks to YOU, and to all our heroes for making a difference with your support to the USA Swimming Foundation!
