Thomas Koch’s Aqua Hands hosted a FINathon fundraiser event on December 7, 2014 at the beautiful Long Center Sports Complex in Clearwater, Florida. In attendance were seventeen children and their parents and everyone had a grand time, both in and out of the pool! They were pleasantly surprised by the famous Phinley, the mascot of the Clearwater Threshers baseball team. He has made a promise to return for the second annual Aqua Hands FINathon in 2015 and it is hoped his appearance will eventually become a tradition.
This was Co.Co Dive’ s first Finathon and also a first ever in Sarawak. It was a cold and wet start to the day, we were at the dive shop at 5am collecting everything we needed for the day to ensure the children would be comfortable for their swim; masks, snorkels, fins & wetsuits.
As we arrived at the school it was pitch black the rain had let up slightly so we we’re a little happier. Joanna, from Project Aware, had called the day before and promised me that the sun always shines for these events so my fingers were crossed.
