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

Although, Kareem's mom would rather not being doing this and have my nephew back anyday,it has helped provide education and water safety prevention to so many families. I am grateful for this organization.

The work this non profit does is impeccable. Helping out people and families in the community is least the I can say. Team Kareem goes far and wide helping families both be educated about drowning prevention and aim to provide either swimming lessons or cpr lessons. I myself have been provided cpr lessons at the convenience of my home. All of what Team Kareem does should have more recognition so it is my honor to spread the word of this organization. I hope this review serves you well in your view about this non profit.

Team Kareem memorial foundation is very resourceful to many families. For those who have lost a love one due to drowning I believe it’s a very neat organization that provides support for each family apart of it. It is very touching and they are very compassionate about what they believe in. It provides education on water safety and access to water safety devices and gadgets to help prevent such tragedies. I recommend this foundation !

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?
