WearIt! World Record Day

On Saturday, May 21, 2016, people in cities around the world will participate in the Wear It! LIfe Jacket campaign to set a world record for the most life jackets worn. 

The goal of Wear It! is to promote how comfortable and versatile life jackets are while educating the public about safe boating. The events provide a fun opportunity for people to learn more about life jackets, try them on, and to learn that it's important to wear a properly fitted one. 

   
The key to making Wear It! a success this year is to have individuals and organizations host events. Whether it is a whole school assembly or just a couple of friends getting together at a marina, every event counts toward the world record.
