Stroke of Genius Zrinski Lions in Croatia cleverly promoted both physical fitness and art appreciation at the city pool in Cakovec. Their Swimming to Light event drew 211 swimmers from ages 3 to 86 who swam a total of 465,150 meters (289 miles). The top swimmer tallied 35,000 meters (2.2 miles). The pool featured the underwater photography of renowned artist Marjan Radovic. Lions used the funds raised from the event to purchase devices for the blind for the city library and an association for the blind and to print city travel guides in Braille.
