I'm sure you've all heard of Project Aware. In case you haven't, it's a charity that aims to raise awareness of why and how we should protect our oceans. They're currently focusing in on two major issues: Marine Debris and Sharks in Peril. As divers, we thought it would be great to do a DLL club event to raise money for this amazing charity.
So we decided to ditch our fins (just for a day), grab our trainers and do a fun run! As we're based in Battersea we were pleased to find a Fun Run taking place practically on our doorstep, Clapham Common, so no excuses! It's taking place on 15 July and there are a number of different distances: 2k (for kids), 5k, 10k and 15k. We're looking to put a DLL team together to take part on the day. Don't worry if you're not an avid runner as this event is open to complete beginners through to elites.
We'll set up a Just Giving website that we can all use to gather donations. There's been suggestions that we should complete the run in full scuba gear....but we think maybe a mask & snorkel will do!
So if you're interested in joining our team, then please get in touch for more info!
