About Us

Miss Tristan Foundation was formed to ensure that Tristan would live on through our drowning prevention efforts. We are dedicated to raise water safety awareness through education of children and adults in and around spas, pools, and open bodies of water. Drowning is the Number 1 cause of accidental death for children under 5 and a leading cause of death for ages 1-14. Drowning is Preventable.

Miss Tristan Foundation in partnership with Hope for the Future, PreK4SA, Colin’s Hope, SA Parks and Recreation, Emler, Aquatots and the YMCA of Greater San Antonio is working to bring water safety education and to provide free swim lessons to preschool age children in San Antonio and to promote water safety awareness in our community.
