In Memory of Drew Smith

The Lake Murray Dam Swim has become a yearly event to honor the life and death of Drew Smith and to celebrate the difference this little boy has made to boating safety in South Carolina. Because of Drew, South Carolina now enforces the Boating Safety and Reform Act of 1999, known as Drew’s Law. This legislation raised the penalties for boating violations to equal that of similar highway violations, most notably that of death resulting from BUI (Boating Under the Influence). Since Drew’s law went into effect, boating fatalities statewide have dropped. The purpose of this event is to promote Water and Boating safety and to finance an indoor swimming facility in memory of Drew Smith in Lexington,SC.

Mr. & Mrs. Smith
