For Phillips 66, who has partnered with USA Swimming for 38 years, the opportunity to sponsor USA Swimming Foundation's Make a Splash Tour with Cullen Jones presented by Phillips 66 was a natural extension of the company's steadfast commitment to safety and education. The company's charitable donation to the initiative will help save lives by giving thousands of children - who would otherwise not have the opportunity - the ability to take swimming lessons. The Make a Splash Tour with Cullen Jones presented by Phillips 66, is a national awareness campaign targeting families with children from non-swimming households who are eight times more likely to be at-risk of drowning, and to educate parents about water safety while offering no to low-cost swimming lessons to children.
