24 Hour Dive-a-thon

Calling on the HeadStart community to show support for the launch of the Oceans For All Foundation book called “Ocean Colours of Thailand”. The book is a collaboration of photos taken by some of the best divers in the region and has been designed to inspire a love for the underwater world that surrounds this beautiful country. The Oceans for All founder, David Martin (also a HeadStart parent), is inviting all members of the diving community to join a 24 Hour Dive-a-thon in the HeadStart swimming pool on the 23rd of October starting at 3.30pm. Here’s how you can get involved:

💧 Sign up for 3 X 20 minute dives. Registration sheets can be found in the atrium. If you are able to get sponsorship of 400 Baht per dive, you will receive a free OFA book!

💧 Sponsor someone diving. A suggested donation of 400 Baht per dive.

💧 If you or your children want to participate but haven’t learned how to dive, there will be an option to do a Scuba Demo in the swimming pool with dive instructors in exchange for a small donation of 300 baht that will go towards the Oceans For All foundation.

To get involved or to become a sponsor email David Martin directly at [email protected]
