Thank you to everyone who helped make our first annual Toy Drive a success! The outpouring of generosity was overwhelming and even continued after our event. The people from the Arapahoe Santa Claus Shop were very grateful and already asking us to participate next year. You can see some of the fun underwater photos taken during our toy drive below:
Have you thought of who you could help this Holiday Season? A-1 Scuba has started a program to help Wounded Warriors have a scuba experience in their new pool, and several A-1 Scuba Vets are assisting these men and women on a monthly basis. I know how the current fragile economy has effected all of us, but as a Vet wife and one blessed with good health to scuba dive, I’m totally in support of our returning warriors who have served and sacrificed for our freedoms we all hold so dear. If you want more information on this non-profit charitable organization, please go to www.woundedwarriorproject.org
You can make a one time contribution or start a monthly contribution with as little as $19/month. Hey that equates to three Starbuck’s Lattes, or a breakfast or lunch out..to help a worthy cause. Thanks for your consideration.
The Current is an inspirational film that demonstrates the healing powers of the ocean for individuals with disabilities. It will feature Jean-Michel Cousteau, Gold Medalist, Missy Franklin, Professional Surfer Bethany Hamilton, Gold Paralimpian Mallory Weggemann, NCAA wrestling champion Anthony Robles, and Wounded Warrior Jessy Murphree.
The Current demonstrates the freedom of movement through activities like scuba diving, surfing and swimming with dolphins and whales. You’ll be able to witness them experience the healing powers of the ocean. Visit a movie trailer of The Current
