District 14 Park and Recreation Board member Rudy Karimi and District 11 Park and Recreation Board member Jeff Kitner teamed up to create the #SlideChallenge. The purpose is to encourage Dallas residents to take advantage of Dallas Aquatic Centers.

As the summer progresses, they’ll share a schedule of when they’ll be at each of pools, and who they’re taking with them.

“This summer, Park Board member Kitner and I are taking our dad bods on the road, visiting each and every one of our aquatic centers,” Karimi says.

“And we’re encouraging people of all bods to visit our aquatic centers,” Kitner says.
