Blue Wave Diving will conduct a “Dive-A-Thon” fundraising event Saturday, May 19th at the Monroe Community College Pool. All divers should be planning on participating in this event. We hope to make this our most successful fund raising event so far! All the funds that we raise this year will go towards updating and enhancing our diving equipment.

To add a little competition to the event, we will have a Pledge Progress form in a link below. We would like everyone to post the amount that you will be diving for weekly and then post final amount prior to the start of the event. The top fundraiser will receive a prize from the Blue Wave Coaches. Post your total pledges at the end of each week by clicking here!
Diving equipment is very expensive to purchase and maintain so PLEASE we need everyone to do their share. Although there is no set requirement that each diver should raise, we suggest the following amounts. Ripples divers should raise $100-$200+ and Rogues and Riptide - divers should raise $250 - $350+. These goals are easily obtained with a little effort.

During the event we will have snacks and drinks for everyone. Also parents are welcome to participate in this event in fact I will set aside a 30 minute class for parents to try diving. I encourage and challenge you all to try it. The event will begin at 9:00AM and you will have 2 hours to complete as many dives as you can. Divers typically complete between 100 - 200 dives or skills. Let’s make a big push and let’s start to get sponsors! Remember the money that you raise will be going back to you.
