The Rockford Park District and area residents joined in a global effort Tuesday to raise awareness for swimming safety.
The local portions of the World's Largest Swim Lesson were held at Alpine Pool and Sand Park Pool Tuesday morning. Learn to Swim instructors, lifeguards, and aquatics managers played host to dozens of swimmers at the free event.
The goal of the lesson, which is sponsored by the World Waterpark Association, was not only to break last year's Guinness World Record, but also raise awareness for swimming safety.
