      Mission: Our event aims to encourage more people to get involved in swimming, cycling and running, three of the most accessible and beneficial forms of exercise. The primary objective of this event is to promote a healthy and active lifestyle by engaging participants in challenging aquatic sports activities. Additionally, we aim to raise awareness about ocean conservation, including the protection of sea animals, efforts to reduce plastic waste in the ocean, and initiatives for ocean cleanup. We would also like to highlight the importance of learning to swim for personal safety, especially in coastal regions like Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry. With the vast expanse of the ocean on our doorstep, the ability to swim can be a lifesaver. In this event, we plan to offer free swim lessons to children and adults to encourage and empower them to embrace water safety.
