Manama, June 17, 2013
Wahooo! Waterpark Bahrain is hosting a giant swimming lesson tomorrow (June 18) for parents and kids in the community as part of the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson (WLSL), a global event.
It is aimed at raising awareness about swimming safety and water education, said a statement from Majid Al Futtaim Leisure & Entertainment.
Communities around the world will be participating in the event at their local waterpark or pool on June 18 to try to break the Guinness World Record and spread the safety message.
Wahooo! is the only place in Bahrain to participate in the international event that is set to break a Guinness World Record for number of participants, said the statement from Majid Al Futtaim Leisure & Entertainment
According to WLSL, drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury-related death for kids under five year’s old, underscoring the importance of swimming lessons at an early age.
The waterpark has invited kids and adults in the community to join in the swimming lesson while helping to spread awareness about swimming safety and drowning prevention.
The event kicks off at 6pm around the world, when kids and adults can partake in the 45-minute swimming lesson at the waterpark and be a part of the Guinness World Record-breaking event, said the statement.
Walk-in participants should arrive by 5pm. Participants will also receive an official Guinness World Record certificate of appreciation documenting the event.
“The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson event is an important way for Wahooo! to foster awareness and educate kids and parents about water safety,” remarked Omar El Banna, the marketing and sales director, Majid Al Futtaim Leisure & Entertainment.
“The safety of our guests is of the upmost importance, and we are pleased to be hosting this event for Bahrain. We encourage members of the community to show their support by taking part in the global initiative,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
