The Katelyn Foundation:
No parent should have to experience the heartbreaking loss of a child. No family should have to bear the far-reaching emotional burden. In memory of our beloved Katelyn T. Michaud, mother Sandra Testo-Michaud and uncle Robert J. Testo, III have launched The Katelyn Foundation.
Why They Came to Be:
Two year-old Katelyn Michaud tragically died in a swimming pool accident on January 27, 2004. In response to her death, The Katelyn Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization for child safety awareness, was founded in 2006 by her mother and uncle to honor her memory and prevent the loss or serious injury of other precious children.
How The Pool Guyz Have Helped:
The Pool Guyz, along with Viking, DONATED the pool and installation to this worthwhile group. The installation took place in torrential rains in Tampa, FL, but The Pool Guyz would not be stopped! Below are pictures of the progress of the installation.
