Our local Health Unit, along with the YMCA in Belleville and Quinte West will be celebrating National Drowning Prevention Week this week with a marathon water treading event. Swimmers will be in the pool treading water from 9:00 a.m. Thursday until 9:00 a.m. on Friday, to raise awareness and money for drowning prevention. Monies raised will go to the Lifesaving Society for their Water Smart program.
