16-Year-Old NYC Competitive Swimmer Started an Organization to Raise Help Low-Income Swimmers

NEW YORK, April 4, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Statistics show that children from low-income homes quit sports at six times the rate of children from high-income homes (Source: https://tinyurl.com/2mxwzp38). Fins4Kids is a new, New York City-based non-profit created by 16-year-old William Levine.

Fins4Kids provides competitive swimming equipment directly to the coaches of teams with individuals who would benefit from our mission. Equipment is available for qualifying athletes ages 10-18.

“Competitive swimming can be expensive. Goggles, tech suits, flippers, fins, swim caps, and kickboards are just some of the necessary equipment for swimming at a competitive level. This equipment helps swimmers strive to accomplish personal swimming goals, such as swimming in college or even the Olympics. Training and competing at the highest levels simply is not cheap,” said William Levine, founder of Fins4Kids. “My vision for this organization is to help as many people as possible.”
