Presenting Dixie Divers'

FOURTH ANNUAL ULTIMATE DIVER CHALLENGE

This is a fundraising event used to raise funds to purchase certification materials for our LOCAL veterans.

 

Scuba diving provides a unique environment with many therapeutic characteristics that simply can’t be replicated on land. First, the weightlessness of being underwater may relieve physical pain and may help patients exercise in a more comfortable manner. Mental and emotional benefits abound also – it’s a place where patients may be able to focus, be more in control and feel a sense of achievement. Scuba has been shown to diminish up to 80% of PTSD symptoms.

Additionally veterans with disabilities reported :

15 percent drop in muscle spasticity

10 percent increase in light touch sensitivity

5 percent jump in sensitivity to pinprick.

 

Giving back to one soldier at a time.
