Wanda Butts Teaches Minorities How to Swim in Memory of Deceased Son [VIDEO]

After her son passed because of drowning, Wanda Butts started a non-profit that teaches minorities to learn to swim.  With blacks being three times more likely to drown than whites it’s very interesting to try and figure out why this is.  There are several theories but one thing that can lessen that state is actually being educated how to swim and be safe in the water.  Through her non-profit, Butts has been able to help over 1,000 kids learn to swim in Ohio.  Check out this profile on Wanda Butts as part of a Top 10 CNN Hero clip.
