The Finathon concept was born in 2011 from one scuba diver’s passion for sharks and has now swept the globe, raising critical funds for shark protection and inspiring a movement to end finning. The first Finathon™ took place in the town of Stoke on Trent, in the heart of England.  An unlikely place to find a tribe of FINatical shark advocates.

The good news is you don’t have to be an event organiser extraordinaire to get involved in the Finathon™ 2013. In fact you don’t actually have to swim at all.

Simply create your very own personal Finathon™ fundraising page, write a few words from the heart about why you love sharks, why sharks are totally awesome and why you think they deserve protecting. Make it personal and ask your friends to support the cause!
