South African charity HSASA to host 6th Annual Dive-A-Thon

Published

on

HSASA has announced plans to host their 6th Annual fundraising event “HSASA 50hr Dive–A-Thon 2021” on 15th to 17th October this year.

The HSASA – Handicapped Scuba Association South Africa – is a non-profit company that specialises in training people with disabilities how to scuba dive.

Scuba Diving has a great rehabilitative effect on people living with disabilities – so great, that it restores their self-confidence and dignity, as well as giving a new perspective in life. After being trained on how to scuba dive, they not only gain new skills in recreational diving but also meet new long-lasting friends.

The event aims to bring together the diving community and dive for 50hrs to help raise funds, they will even be diving throughout the night!

Divers can support the event by buying dive slots, which are one hour each and the charity are now reaching out to divers around the world to ask if they would kindly consider sponsoring a dive slot too. The aim is to sell 1000 dive-slots in total.

One dive slot costs R150 (approximately $10/€8.90/£7.70)
