Strap on your flippers, fill up your oxygen tanks and dive in the Handicapped Scuba Association South Africa (HSASA) 50 hour Dive-A-Thon!

The HSASA is an established non-profit company that operates independently from any dive school. With their first project they are challenging people with disabilities, as well as divers with no disibility, to participate in a weekend-long diving marathon at Miracle Waters outside Brits in North West.

This event aims to raise enough funds to provide training and dive trips for people with disabilities, who don’t have the finances to explore the deep blue sea.

“We at HSASA aim to change and improve the physical and social well-being of people living with disabilities, through the recreational sport of Scuba Diving. We are dedicated to ensuring that the people whom we train are given the same opportunity to receive quality training, certification and dive adventures as divers without disibility,” says Melissa Leonard, a director of HSASA.

The event will run from Friday March 10 to Sunday March 12. The cost per person per hour is R150. The invitation to join is extended to any diving school and any diver who wishes to have a good time and make a difference to a fellow diver!
