It's a part of childhood, swimming. However, not every child knows how. Thanks to Children's Miracle Network, that's changing in Shreveport-Bossier.

Because of Children's Miracle Network, swim lessons are offered at Christus Louisiana Aquatics. They also feature a year-round competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction. This is available for kids of all ages and abilities, from novice to international competitor.

With summer right around the corner, isn't it time your child learned to swim. It could save their life.

Beginning tomorrow, we are going to ask you to open up your hearts to Children Miracle Network.

We’ve teamed up with Children’s Miracle Network and Christus Health Shreveport-Bossier For the Kids (#FTK). As a Miracle Maker, your $12 a month will go to the incredible programs funded by CMN like the Christus Louisiana Aquatics. That’s the beauty of CMN. Every dollar raised will stay right here to help those around us.

“Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion—most of it $1 at a time—for 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.

Our mission: We increase funds and awareness for local children’s hospitals.

Our vision: Together we save kids’ lives.

Right now there’s a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital working to save the lives of kids in your community. In fact, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute — that’s one child every second. Some are battling cancer. Some are suffering from a traumatic injury. Others require constant care because they were born too early, or with a genetic disease. Regardless of why the kids are there, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals always have their doors open.”
