Close to half of American kids don't know how to swim, but an Olympic swimmer from the state of Washington is trying to change that.  

Nathan Adrian of Bremerton just participated in the USA Swimming Foundation's Make a Splash initiative, a nationwide tour sponsored by Phillips 66.

Adrian says the foundation works with local sponsors to help disadvantaged kids get swimming lessons.

Adrian is a three-time Olympic gold medalist and is the American record holder in the 50- and 100-yard freestyle.
