Swimming attempts to break world record with Tread-A-Thon

SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury University men's and women's swimming teams will join swim teams across the country to help raise awareness about drowning by attempting to break a world record.

On Wednesday, September 27, the Sea Gulls will jump into the pool here at Maggs Physical Activities Center in an attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records: "Most people treading water at the same time in multiple locations" record. The current record stands at 805 people.

This attempt at the world record is part of a bigger picture and campaign to raise awareness about the global drowning pandemic and to help raise money for the development of drowning intervention programs like SWIM Cambodia. The members of the maroon and gold swim team ask everyone to please consider donating to this cause, any amount will help greatly.

The event is scheduled to take place from 5-5:30 p.m. tomorrow night.
