McKeon Family Fund
McKeon Family Fund has been established to provide swimming lessons for children and adults in our community who may never have the opportunity to learn to swim and be safer in and around the water.
Swim School Directors, Susie and Ron along with their three children, David, Emma and Kaitlin, are committed to making a difference in the Wollongong community and “sharing their love of water”.
Since 2017 the McKeon Family Fund has funded over 3000 lessons to underprivileged children in the Illawarra.
- Families referred by Barnardos attend weekly swimming lessons.
- Warrawong Public School year 5 and 6 attended a weekly RLSSA Swim and Survive Program in Term 3.
- Barrack Heights Public School years 3 - 6 attended weekly RLSSA Swim and Survive Program in Term 1.
A special thank you to Oak Flats Bowling and Recreation Club for your continual contribution to this program and making a difference to local families.
