As we all look for ways to relieve stress during this difficult period of social distancing and confinement, FORCE BLUE has come up with a fun, irreverent way for divers, ocean enthusiasts and anyone who cares about our marine environment to stay fit, reconnect with their passion and have a few laughs at the same time.

INTRODUCING FORCE BLUE’S

THRASH til we SPLASH!

Challenge

Each week from now until Memorial Day, a Special Operations Veteran from FORCE BLUE will be sharing a video of themselves performing an exercise or physical activity from the confines of their own home that incorporates SCUBA gear and/or the training they underwent as military combat divers in a unique, light-hearted way.

Viewers are encouraged to film themselves performing the same task and challenge three (3) additional friends to do the same thing.

Those viewers who choose not only to participate, but to send their videos to FORCE BLUE along with a tax-deductible donation of $25 or more, will be entered in a drawing to win a THRASH til we SPLASH “Heroes” package, that will include (a FORCE BLUE hat, t-shirt, hoodie, signature DEEP BLUE dive watch and a pair of Skeleton Optics sunglasses).

100% of the donations raised will go to support FORCE BLUE’s 100 Yards of Hope coral reef restoration mission.
