Water related accidents (drowning) happens at the blink of an eye. This non profit organization goes above and beyond to assist with educating families and schools on the importance of being safe around water. In addition, they have provided many individuals/families with swimming vouchers so they can learn how to swim and remain safe around water. Team Kareem Memorial Foundation continues to raise awareness so that no family would not have to experience what this young mother has endured. The fear of losing a child or a loved one is heartbreaking and with this organizations strong commitment to provide water safety awareness, I believe we can combat these tragedies one community at a time. Supporting this organization is near and dear to my heart and I will continue to support this amazing young lady and organization.

The Team Kareem Memorial Foundation is a vital organization here in Florida especially for the fact that Florida is filled with pools and beaches. Water safety, and drowning prevention is just amongst the few devices the nonprofit provides. As a volunteer for the various events and fundraisers the organization has hosted I am honored to help out and attend all of them.

A well needed nonprofit in my community here in central Florida (Kissimmee/Poinciana/St.Clould/Orlando area

Team Kareem is a wonderful organization that doesn’t get a lot of recognition. Drowning prevention is so important but people still don’t see the troubles of it until it is too late. Great to see the hardworking volunteers and owner to create a better society to live in.

Team Kareem Memorial Foundation is absolutely amazing. They have allowed me to get my 14 month old son in swim lessons. Having a pool in our backyard, I appreciate that I will now have peace of mind knowing that my little guy will have the skills to save himself if he ever fell in. Anything can happen and it's so necessary for children and adults to be educated about water safety and know how to swim. This is an awesome organization to spread the word about & support.

Learning how to swim is necessary. I have a four year old son, who has a love- hate relationship with water. I have family members that are adults and don’t know how to swim, and I don’t want that for my son. So, I reached out to Ms ArKesha (Team Kareem) and she showed me how to sign my son up for swimming lessons, and I’m truly grateful for her because she’s willing to help others so they will not have to go through trying times on losing their child/children to drowning.

Team Kareem is an amazing organization that raises awareness for the prevention of drowning for children. I became aware of this organization through Keisha who is the founder. Her story is heartbreaking but her ability to take such a personal loss and turn it into an educational experience for others takes a special person. Keisha's goal to teach young children how to prevent drowning should be one shared by everyone. No family should have to go through that, and just a few lessons can help save lives. Please, share the information. Be aware of your children and grandchildren when you're around water. Don't just assume someone else is watching them. It only takes a few seconds to change a family forever.

Team Kareem Memorial foundation is doing an amazing job bringing awareness to the community. Being new to the community and having small children we quickly became aware of the foundation. Keisha the owner has personally encouraged me and my children to learn how to swim as a preventative measure which was sponsored by the foundation. She is an awesome individual and what she is doing for the community through her foundation is is amazing!!!!

Prevention remains the best treatment and this organization has been just that. In addition to providing education, swimming, water safety lessons and pool fencing education, this mother has increased her territory by adding a book for younger children and group talks to encourage others to join the movement to prevent water related accidents. The organization is filled with pure love in hopes of saving lives. Although, it hurts, I am grateful to walk alongside this cause at any time. I know there is a purpose and it shows with each growing second. Keep hope alive by supporting Team Kareem Memorial Foundation.

This organization is an added bonus to child safety and safety overall. The benefits the organization offers include help with drowning prevention knowledge, swimming, and cpr lessons. The importance of water safety needs to be broadcasted nationwide to prevent fatal or horrific accidents from happening.

TKM Foundation is an awesome organization that educates the community on the importance of water safety and tips on how to stay safe in water and also preventative measures. They also gives customers access to many devices and gadgets to help as well. What I love most about TKMF is, the organization is family based and there is so much compassion and support shown to the people of the community and those who have also lost a loved one due to drowning. I recommend this organization.

Team Kareem is a much needed organizaton. By attending their annual walk I learned so much. I was educated about the importance of prevention of drowning awareness, especially concerning the death of children. I had no clue how often this happens. The organization works so passionately to save lives. I like the fact that Parents and children can learn CPR and water safety tips. At the walk I received life jackets for my niece and nephews. Which I am truly grateful for. Organizations such as this are needed because a lot if families can not afford floation devices or swimming lessons. I am appreciative of the services that Team Kareem provide and I support it wholeheartedly.

This type of charity work is near and dear to my heart as I lost my grandson. Since his death, life has not been the same and it is my hope and prayer that noone has to experience such a tragedy as this. This non profit organization helps keep his memory alive while educating others and providing for less fortunate families. These families will not be able to pay for lessons for their loved ones. Whatever I can do to keep his memory alive and save others from a dreadful day. Through thos organization, many families have come together as one voice and to lean on one another. This organization reaches many lives in a positive manner. It educates and gives back at the same time. Keep hope alive#notonemore

They made it possible for my son to go from never taking his feet off the floor of the pool, to being more relaxed, to beginning floating, swimming, adding all together the many parts of swimming like moving arms, kicking legs, keeping face in water, and moving. There is so much to learning how to swim! My son is well on his way to swimming 100%. He has had only 5 weeks of classes, but the difference is incredible.

Such a vital part of life, swimming should be required of every child, like learning to walk.

This organization is helping to save children’s lives, to give them crucial tools to help them save their own lives if faced with a crisis. How wonderful is that?
