The Dive-a-Thon is SDOF`s (San Diego Ocean Foundtaion) largest fundraiser of the year, with the goal to "get divers diving" - while spreading our message of ocean stewardship. Similar to a walk-a-thon, divers seek financial pledges from friends and family to support their diving goal during the month of August. Some divers choose to set fundraising goals while others compete to log the most minutes underwater. ANY diver in the USA can register for this event, and registered divers can get credit for dives completed ANYWHERE in the world during August. Prizes are awarded based on points: Each $1 raised earns you 2 points. Each 1 minute logged earns you 1 point. Previous prizes have included a DUI dry suit, 2 for 1 dive trip to FIJI, dive computers, BCDs, dive gear, restaurant gift certificates and tickets to local attractions. The tax-deductible registration fee is $25 and includes a FREE event t-shirt. Registration opens in June and ends August 15th.
