Friday, July 13

Pre-registration is required for this free event. Free! On Thursday, June 21, tens of thousands of kids and adults at aquatic facilities around the world will unite for the ninth year in a row to make noise that Swimming Lessons Save Lives™. A global event, The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ (WLSL), will take place over the course of 24 hours at an estimated 600 locations in more than 20 countries. Since its inception, more than 235,000 children and adults have participated in WLSL lessons generating more than half a billion media impressions about the vital importance of learning to swim. The 2017 WLSL event included 41,068 participants from 26 countries. Tragically, in the U.S. drowning remains the leading cause of unintended, injury related death for children ages 1-4, and the second leading cause of accidental death for children under 14. Research shows participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88% among children aged 1 to 4, yet many kids do not receive formal swimming or water safety training. O'Fallon's Renaud Spirit Center and Alligators Creek Aquatic Center will both serve as official Host Location facilities for the WLSL 2018 event. Parents are invited to learn more about this event by visiting www.WLSL.org. 110112-A Th 110112-B Th
