The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ was created to spread the word that Swimming Lessons Save Lives™ – tragically, drowning is the second leading cause of unintended, injury related death of children ages 1-14. Research shows if a child doesn’t learn to swim before the 3rd grade, they likely never will.

Interview/Visuals:
Joy Zigler, Marketing Director will be available for interviews, visuals of children and adults participating in the world record attempt lesson taking place simultaneously in an estimated 16 countries and 40 + states/territories in the US.
