Take the Lifejacket Challenge #whyiwill

Date & Time: Jun. 5, 2017 8:00 AM - Jun. 29, 2017 4:30 PM

Location: Canadian Tire Sports Department Lambton Mall 1380 London Rd, Sarnia, ON N7S 1P8

The Lambton Water Wise "Lifejacket Challenge - Why I Will" encourages boaters and swimmers to reduce the risk of drowning by wearing a lifejacket at all times when in or near the water.

Instead of making up a reason not to wear a lifejacket, Water Wise challenges everyone to share positive reasons 'Why I Will' wear a personal flotation device (PFD) or lifejacket.

Non-use of a lifejacket is among the leading causes of drowning related deaths in Canada, including Lambton County.

The challenge runs June 5-29.
