Dive For a Cure - October 5

Niagara Divers’ Association (NDA) welcomes its fifth annual Dive for a Cure, donating over $34, 000 for the Canadian Cancer Society to-date. President of the Niagara Divers’ Association, Natasa Djermanovic, first began this fundraiser when her son Aleksander Djermanovic, was diagnosed with all acute lymphoblastic leukemia, undergoing twenty five months of chemo therapy. Growing each year, the event involves approximately 75 divers and 150 participants on-land take part in the festivities from all over Southern Ontario this past Sunday. In the water, divers compete in one to two underwater scavenger hunts to locate labeled rocks and exchange them for various prizes. In addition, there is an underwater pumpkin carving contest as well as one on-land. The community truly comes together for this great cause every year as many of the local dive shops support the event through donating silent auction prizes as well as free air to the divers participating. With various the silent auction prizes to be won, divers and non-divers alike joined in for a day of diving, eating and supporting this fantastic cause.

  • The 2013 Junior and U23 champs was the most wonderful experience for us in South Africa. Although our kayak community is relatively small, we are an intense group of loyal supporters. Following the build-up on your website as well as your Facebook and the photos on WIFC Facebook page was the highlight of my day. Not only mine but many of us shared links from early morning. Thanks for the effort and a huge congratulations on your achievement. The live streaming gave many of us goose bumps and the occasional lump in the throat. I checked many comments by parents all over the globe, don`t worry, we are all the same, from Japan, Canada, Africa. Thanks for sharing the wonderful experience. Today I could watch my son`s semi-final on Youtube, tonight we will watch it again and every day I will check Youtube for new uploads.
