It’s a festival of Finathons from around the world! From swimming in the pool to ocean relays, triathlons and wacky races – divers and shark supporters worldwide are taking the challenge to end finning. It’s not too late to organize a fun event or join one near you.
So far, Project AWARE Finathon teams have raised nearly $30,000 (online and offline) toward our global target of $40,000. And we have one month left to hit our goal! Together, we will: Fight to stop shark finning, Insist on full protections for critically endangered sharks and Negotiate stronger policies to ensure a brighter future for all sharks.
You don’t have to shave your head for sharks. But that’s just what Divemaster Heather Murray is planning to do as part of the global Finathon and she’s on top of the leaderboard of events. She’s already raised her fundraising target from $500 originally to $10,000 (so many people want to see her shave her head). She’s raised more than $6000 so far. And if she reaches her $10,000 target by her 29th birthday next month, she’ll shave off all her hair to make a stand against finning. Go Heather!
