Diveheart Adaptive Scuba Event

  • Dive Georgia - Cherokee Aquatic Center 1200 Gresham Mill Pkwy Holly Springs, GA, 30115 United States (map)

Throughout their lives, some people with disabilities are told that they cannot participate activities that able-bodied people enjoy. By buddying with able-bodied volunteer scuba divers, Diveheart has proven that disabilities become possibilities. In doing so, a whole new world of opportunities becomes available where they once weren’t. Through both leisure based activities and even medicinal possibilities, Diveheart enables its adaptive divers to discover life in a fashion that couldn’t be imagined even in their wildest dreams.

Jack Wareham a senior at Cherokee High School in Canton, Georgia doing his Senior Project helping everyone explore the world of diving regardless of physical ability. He is a member and volunteer for the charity known as Diveheart. Diveheart is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve self-esteem and empower people of all ages and ability levels through participation in adaptive scuba diving.

For his senior project, he has organized an event at the Cherokee County Aquatic Center on Sixes Road for March 22nd, 2015 and would like to extend an invitation anyone associated with organizations that could benefit from such a program in participating. The event will be free of charge, with gear and trained buddies provided by Dive Georgia.
