Next Tuesday, June 18th at 11am, thousands of kids and adults at aquatic facilities around the world will unite to set a new global record for The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson.

Parks & Recreation Windsor will be offering a free 45-minute lesson at Adie Knox Herman Recreation Complex, Windsor Water World and Mic Mac Pool. They will also receive a certificate stating that he/she helped in setting a new world record for The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson.

Participants must register ahead of time on www.reconnectwindsor.ca.

Organizers say that tragically, drowning is the second leading cause of unintended, injury related death of children ages 1 to 14. Unfortunately, research shows that if a child doesn’t learn to swim before the third grade, they likely never will. The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson was created to help spread the word that Swimming Lessons Save Lives.

If you would like to gather more information about the event or water safety and drowning prevention, you can contact the event coordinators at 519-253-2300 ext. 2727.
