What is the Finathon?
Like a swimathon – the Finathon is a great way to bring the community together, raise awareness and funds to support this unique cause.
You can help Project AWARE:
- Fight to stop shark finning
- Insist on full protections for critically endangered sharks
- Negotiate stronger policies to ensure a brighter future for all sharks
After great success and support during Master Divers 23km relay Finathon around Koh Tao in 2013, this year they’ve upped the ante and Gene Girardeau will complete a 43km open water solo swim! Gene is training every day and all donations will boost her motivation and help protect sharks.
Gene said, “I love a challenge and I love open water swimming, my dream was to swim the English Channel but I don’t swim well in cold water so have chosen to swim between Koh Phangnan and Koh Tao. It’s very important to save sharks because they are the apex predators, sharks maintain fish populations and keep the ocean healthy.”
Whether it’s a 1km pool challenge, an island relay or a pool party the Finathon is fun for all and a great way to raise much needed funds.
Will you get swimming to end finning in 2014? We’re looking for 100 Finathon Champions visit www.finathon.org to get started.
