Guinness World Record at Kenwood Cove

Salinans will have a chance to help set a new world record - in the pool.

Salinans will have a chance to help set a new world record – in the pool.

Heather Stanek, Recreation Supervisor with Kenwood Cove tells KSAL News that on Tuesday, June 18th, water parks, pools and other aquatic facilities around the world will host the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson at 10am, “We hope to break the record for largest simultaneous swimming lesson.”

Stanek says it is a great time for young and old alike to learn skills that can help keep you safe in the water this summer, “Drowning is the second leading cause of unintended, injury related death for children who are between the ages of 1 to 14-years old.”

Stanek adds that if children have not learned to swim by the time they are in the third grade, it’s likely they never will.

Last year Salina participated in the world wide event that represented 16 countries and over 24,800 kids to raise awareness about the importance of learning to swim.

All lessons will take place simultaneously at 10am on June 18th and last up to 30-minutes. Cost is $1 per participant.

For more information contact Kenwood Cove at 785 826 7430.
