About

Karen and Brian Cohn co-founded The ZAC Foundation in 2008 in honor of their 6-year-old son; Zachary Archer Cohn who passed away after his arm became entrapped in a pool drain in July 2007.

The ZAC Foundation was established to prepare children and families for a lifetime of water safety. The organization works to strengthen pool safety legislation and funds advocacy, education and effective programming surrounding water safety.
