Drennen's Dreams Foundation

On June 5, 2010, Drennen O'Melia opened his seventh competitive swim season by swimming the anchor leg on two winning relay teams. The next day, Drennen drowned in four feet of water despite the presence of lifeguards. Drennen's Dreams Foundation was created to focus on making guarded pools safer, especially for children, to ensure no more unnecessary deaths occur due to insufficient training of lifeguards, mismanagement of facilities, and lack of necessary monitoring and medical equipment.
