noun - Swim Free Angel™ is an initiative by Swim Free, a New York-based non-profit organization, to comfort people young and old in and around the water, offering encouragement and coping mechanisms. The Swim Free Angels™ currently offer swim angels to help at swim pools around the New York City area and to provide support shore-side and in the water at multiple NYC Swim events and the Westchester Triathlon and the 2011 Nautica NYC Triathlon.

Swim Free Angels swam with the blind swimmer the entire swim leg of the triathlon.

Origin[edit]

Drury Gallagher of Swim Free first popularized the name circa 2009.
