Swimming Lessons Save Lives to Millions!
Thank you, Team WLSL, for making the 2016 World’s Largest Swimming Lesson the BEST yet. On Friday, June 24th, our global team of 40,298 participants at 641 locations worked to send our lifesaving message to hundreds of millions of people on six continents in 24 hours.
Host locations from 24 countries around the globe and 45 states in the U.S. taught tens of thousands of kids the vital importance of water safety and how to be safer in and around the water. Then, they made A LOT of noise tweeting & posting and working with local and national media. We’re talking more than 125 MILLION media impressions. Together, we’ve shared this vital message more than half a billion times since 2010. Amazing!!
A huge THANK YOU to all our Host Locations, Supporting Organizations, volunteers and the local, national and international media for your commitment and energy. Your support helped make 2016 the #BiggestSwimLessonEver reaching more people in more countries around the globe than ever before!
