What is SCUBA for Diabetes?

Divers work together to assemble 1 of 6 giant metal puzzles in a relaxed, fun underwater setting. Puzzles are 50 sq. feet each, containing 220 giant metal pieces. Dive time is one hour +.

A minimum donation of $100 per person due on or before the day of the event is required to participate. Each diver will receive one hour + of dive time, a commemorative Verizon Wireless SCUBA for Diabetes t-shirt, and be eligible to order a FREE ticket to watch the Cleveland Indians take on the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday, May 10, 2008 at 7:05pm at Jacobs Field (discounted tickets for friends and family will be available). This also is Sizemore Fleece Blanket giveaway night! Divers who raise $200+ will have the opportunity to parade the field before the game!

The event will be limited to the first 200 divers age 10 or older with signed waivers and valid certification cards (for insurance purposes, divers without proof of certification will not be allowed to dive). Divers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
