AN OPEN Water Autism Swim event will be held in Pulau Redang on April 13.
It is set to be the first Open Water Autism Swim event of its kind to be organised in the Asian region involving a large number of participants from the autistic spectrum.
It is organised by Hawary Swimming Centre (HSC) in conjunction with Autism Awareness Month.
As a social commitment towards the autism community, Taaras Beach & Spa Resort, managed by Berjaya Hotels & Resorts (BHR), a division of Berjaya Land Berhad, offered its facilities for the special swimmers.
Pulau Redang was selected as the ideal premises for the event, by taking into account the serenity and beauty of the beach.
Eight participants from all age groups and severity will participate.
All participants, who are HSC students, will take part in the 2km, 1km and 500m swim events.
