A FINtastic thank you to Langley Diving, BC, Canada, for completing their second indoor pool Finathon. Les Newman, PADI Course Director and Finathon team of 12 just raised $1,200 by swimming to help end finning.
“I love sharks. I’ve been in the water with them on every continent from Great Whites in Cape Town, to Thailand, the Caribbean, the Red Sea, Australia, the South Pacific, Florida and California! I would rather dive with sharks than people,” says Les.
Les plans to make the Finathon a yearly event on his scuba calendar. Will you join Project AWARE and Finathon champions everywhere in the race and get swimming to end finning?
What is the Finathon™? Like a walkathon, fun run or marathon – the Finathon is a great way to bring the community together, raise awareness and challenge funds to support this unique cause. You can help Project AWARE:
- Fight to stop shark finning
- Insist on full protections for critically endangered sharks
- Negotiate stronger policies to ensure a brighter future for all sharks
Take Action: July is Project AWARE’s official Finathon month and we need you! Visit www.Finathon.org to find out how you can bring your local community together to raise awareness and funds for this unique cause and get started.
