On Thursday, June 14 from 10am-Noon, the Oak Brook Park District’s Family Aquatic Center, 1450 Forest Gate Road, will join hundreds of other aquatic facilities across the globe for The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ in an attempt to break the 2011 Guinness World Record for the largest simultaneous swimming lesson ever conducted.
The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ was developed to build awareness about the vital importance of teaching children to swim to help prevent drowning. Swimming is a life-saving skill for children and a vital tool to prevent drowning, the second leading cause of unintended, injury-related death for children ages 1-14.
