The USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash Tour with Cullen Jones, presented by Phillips 66, was designed to raise awareness about water safety and the importance of learning how to swim. Nearly 70% of African-Americans, 60% of Latinos, and 42% of Caucasians in this country cannot swim.As of May 2013, the Make a Splash initiative, which began in 2007, has granted $2.9 million to provide free or reduced cost swimming lessons to children who may not otherwise have the chance to swim. To date, more than 1.8 million kids have received the life-saving gift of swim lessons through the Make a Splash Local Partner network. This year, Phillips 66 is celebrating 40 years of sponsoring USA Swimming, the longest consecutive sponsorship of any amateur sport in history. The company’s association with swimming actually dates back to 1950 when the company created the Phillips Petroleum Splash Club, a local swim program. In the ensuing decades, Phillips 66 has hosted national events, sponsored inner-city swim programs, accepted the AAU Swimming Award, sponsored the Phillips 66 National Championships and, in 2009, helped create the Make a Splash Tour with the Foundation. In 1973, the company became an official sponsor of USA Swimming. “Phillips 66 is a very important part of our USA Swimming family and integral to athletes and the fabric of the sport,” said Chuck Wielgus, Executive Director, USA Swimming. “You will find countless individual stories of how Phillips 66 helped generations of swimmers reach their dreams in the sport.” MEDIA AVAILABILITY Four-time Olympic medalist Cullen Jones, a two-time Olympian and the American record-holder in the 50-meter freestyle, is available for interview on June 20 between 9-10am, CST.
