Are you planning a run, swim, dive in the ocean or out of a plane?


A PADI Team have a reason to run this weekend, the fit five are raising funds for Project AWARE.

‘Team PADI’ have raised an amazing $790, can you help them double their target and reach $1,000?

Two weeks ago I discovered 5 PADI girls were running the 6.5km Sydney Sun Run. “Why not raise funds too?” I asked. And we set up an online fundraising page. The donations started rolling in.

It’s a big weekend of fundraising in Sydney, Australia. But we didn’t sit down and plan it that way. I’d always wanted to do an ocean swim so I registered for the Cole Classic. The website asked me if I’d like to fundraise. So I did. Project AWARE was already on the list of charities. Easy.

Next step, add your story to Facebook and email all your friends. Tell them why you want to protect our ocean planet and what it means to you.

Online sponsorship makes fundraising simple. It’s easy to ask your friends to support your latest challenge, big or small.

Talk to your friends about what you’re doing. Organise a morning tea at your office. Collect  donations for a lucky door prize. 

Good luck to the runners who will be on the start line at 7am Saturday. The Sun Run  winds its way along the coast from Dee Why to Manly where the Cole Classic Ocean Swim kicks off the following morning. 

A big thanks to PADI staff who donated over $500 to Team PADI: Karen, Lisa, Olivia, Tanya and Molly.    

If you have an event coming up why not make it a fundraiser too and help protect our ocean planet.
