Hi! My name is Missy Linaberry and my husband and I have been residents of River Falls, Wisconsin for more than 20 years. Recently I was introduced to ISR (Infant Swimming Resource) and the ISR Self-Rescue™ program for infants and children ages 6 months to 6 years old. A video of how their proven techniques work can be found below:
According to the CDC, drowning is the number one cause of accidental death for infants and young children between the ages of 1 and 4 years old. As a former Red Cross Water Safety Instructor it is my life's purpose to improve the safety of children in and around the water; but it should be noted that traditional swimming lessons do not teach these self-rescue skills to children in this age group. By becoming an ISR Instructor, it will be my distinct honor to serve my community, West Central Wisconsin and East Central Minnesota, and make the ISR program available in our area. Currently the closest certified ISR Instructor is over 250 miles away.
I am committed to delivering these survival swimming lessons to the families in our community and surrounding area but I need your support. I will pay forward this support in the form of a dollar-for-dollar, matching scholarship fund for my future ISR students.
If the mission that "NOT ONE MORE CHILD DROWNS" touches your heart like it does mine then I thank you for joining in that mission with your gift.
If you prefer, your support can be mailed to:
Please Bring ISR to Our Community
