The Butterfly Strokes Program
The Marcie Mazzola Foundation in collaboration with Saf-T-Swim launched the “Butterfly Strokes” Program in 2010. The mission of this program is:
“to keep children safe in and around water, to build self-confidence and trust, increase physical strength, and to heal from within.”
This is program is specifically focused to improve the lives of children who have suffered abuse, sexual, physical, and/or emotional. To date, children from the following organizations have received scholarships to attend the six week program.
- Family Service League, Huntington and Riverhead, NY
- The Safe Center, Bethpage, NY (formally Coalition Against Child Abuse & Neglect)
