Karen Curreri’s son, former USC swimmer Joe Curreri, died on October 26, 2007, in an accidental drowning incident as a result of a shallow water blackout. He was 27.
As our Newport Beach, CA Ambassador and Ambassador Mentor Karen spent Saturday, September 23, spreading Shallow Water Blackout Awareness. She attended Water Polo Tournaments at Corona Del Mar High School and Newport Harbor High School in which many teams were participating. She met with many parents, coaches, and spoke to some of the local newspaper reporters while distributing many of our posters and fliers while she raised awareness about Shallow Water Blackout.
Thank you Karen. Your efforts are saving lives while honoring your son Joe.
