You can win a pair of SeaSpecs Classic Sunglasses just by learning more about the health risks associated with secondary contact recreational water activities.

Participating in recreational water activities other than swimming does not exempt you from the health risks associated with poor water quality. Recreational water activities with limited water contact can also put you at risk of contracting an illness or infection.

Swim Guide and SeaSpecs have joined forces to help spread the word about secondary contact recreational water illnesses.
