According to officials, drowning remains the leading cause of unintended, injury related deaths 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.
“This free lesson will give kids and adults access to a swim lesson they otherwise may never receive to promote water safety and the importance of learning to swim,” said event officials.
