Clears throat tap tap tap is this thing on?
This post was cleared by the Mod Squad and I hope that someone(s) in the Doper community can benefit from this event.
To summarize, Diveheart is a group that teaches disabled people to scuba dive. I’ve worked with them for years and they’re fantastic. My friend’s son is having a fundraiser for them this weekend in Georgia and it’s free to attend and participate so I thought that there may be some people in our doper family that could benefit. Again, this is FREE to attend and FREE to participate, so if you or someone you know has a disability and is interested to learn to scuba dive, this is a fantastic opportunity. Alternately, if you or someone you know is disabled and you don’t live in the Atlanta area, PM me and I can get you in touch with the group directly- this event just happens to be in Atlanta this weekend, the group has events all over the country.
Everyone please have a look at this, particularly if you are in the Atlanta area or know someone who is:
Please consider attending or make a donation if you are able to, this is a fantastic group that I’ve worked with many times and Zack is trying to raise some money for them to upgrade their equipment and allow even more disabled people to learn to dive. (Zack is my friend’s son and a young avid diver)
Saturday/Sunday’s event is free and will allow people with disabilities the experience of scuba in the pool at Sea Ventures in Georgia- what an amazing opportunity! I’ve personally seen people who haven’t been out of a wheelchair in years floating in the water, doing somersaults and enjoying a freedom they never thought possible again. This is for people with mental as well as physical disabilities. I’ll try to answer any specific questions about the event that I can or refer you to someone that can give more details.
