KP San Diego Makes a Splash in Chula Vista

May 28, 2014 marked our seventh year of helping our community's little ones to Thrive safely in the water through swim lessons provided by Operation Splash.  This wonderful program, conducted by the city of Chula Vista for over 1,200 children, has been funded in part by a healthy KP San Diego grant to the Friends of Chula Vista Parks and Recreation since its inception locally.

Operation Splash began in 2006 in Los Angeles, and with its expansion to Bakersfield, Ventura, San Bernardino, Riverside, Coachella Valley and Chula Vista, the program has now grown to a $2.5 million commitment to improve swim safety and expand access to public pools throughout Southern California. A total of $365,000 in grant funding has been provided, over seven years, in Chula Vista.

“This program is a demonstration that through good community partnerships, we can make a difference in the lives of children. In addition to promoting safety, Operation Splash encourages children to be more active, and the more active they become, the healthier they will be,” said Jane Finley, senior vice president and executive director for Kaiser Permanente San Diego.  Chula Vista Mayor Cheryl Cox reinforced the importance of the Operation Splash to greatly help prevent accidents around pools.
