Jon Atwater Fundraiser - To Make a Difference

In September 2013 a mentor of mine, Mark Divine, e-mailed me “Courage Doesn't Always Roar” his account of Jon Atwater’s heroic battle to overcome paralysis for the second time.

I read Marks email just minutes after meeting with a man with similar challenges to start him on the journey to scuba diving.  That man and his family are now good friends, and the experience has touched everyone involved in an uplifting and positive manner. We were honored to have been apart of it.

Likewise, as I've followed Jon Atwater's journey over the last few months, I found myself quietly cheering him on and wishing there was more I could do. His determination and courage to recover and move forward in life after a devastating injury, has inspired and deeply resonated with me.

Today, thanks to his family, friends and teammates, there is a unique opportunity to encourage, support and cheer-on this inspiring man. The SEALFIT: Jon Atwater Fundraiser Auction is online now.  Through our dive-charter company,  Easy Diver Charters, I've donated a 6-Person, 2-Day Dive Package which includes:

Two days of diving with Easy Diver Charters in Pensacola, FL. for up to 6 divers.

Including one day diving on the U.S.S. Oriskany and another day of diving on surrounding wrecks.  Each day of diving would include two escorted dives and any scuba gear needed for the dives.  This package also includes 3-nights lodging in our 2700 square foot town home in Pensacola. Each day of diving will be escorted by my crew and I. To learn more or place a bid, visit the online auction for Jon Atwater now, or go directly to the Dive Package Page.

In addition, we've donated a brand new Aqua Lung Legend Regulator with a lifetime warranty and the Aqua Lung Parts for Life Program. All proceeds will go to Jon's physical rehabilitation.

Please join me, join a whole team in support of those who inspire us all with their courage.  Thank you.
