Drowning surpasses all other causes of death among children ages 14 and under in California and Los Angeles County has the highest rate of near-drowning of any county in the state. After learning this fact, our guest Larry Turkheimer and the LA Tri Club created the Coast 2 Coast Swim Challenge, www.coast2coastswim.com in 2011 . Their second annual event is a week away and the goal is for swimmers to swim from LA to New York – 2,462 miles – and raise over $40,000 to provide swim lessons for kids in Compton, South LA and Culver City. All of the action will be at the Culver City Plunge Aquatic Center between 5 am and midnight on Sunday May 20th.
