What is a Finathon®? Whatever you want it to be!

From climbing mountains to building sandcastles, Finathon is all about doing whatever inspires you to fundraise for ocean protection. Project AWARE’s Finathon is the ultimate way divers can support ocean protection – fins on and off.

As divers, we know that tackling two of the biggest threats facing our ocean – marine debris and over-exploitation of shark and ray species – is a real challenge. Finathon brings the dive community together to raise critical funds and awareness for the plight of our ocean and its wildlife.

Ocean protection depends on our actions, large and small. Now, more than ever before, divers are taking a stand for conservation. Take part in a Finathon challenge of your choice to help Project AWARE:

  • Fight to stop the ugly journey of our trash
  • Insist on full protections for the most vulnerable shark and ray species
  • Negotiate policies that ensure a sustainable future for our ocean and its wildlife

Over the past 25 years, we’ve stayed at the forefront of emerging ocean issues and pressing global challenges. Together we are proof that even in the face of tremendous conservation challenges we can connect as a community, drive action and influence positive change. Every shared victory, challenge and story keeps us inspired, motivated and pressing forward to the next.

Finathon Fundraisers’ dedication and creativity fuel grassroots action and policy change necessary to ensure a clean, healthy ocean planet today and in the future.
