Great Lakes Big Five Dive and Stand Up for the Great Lakes, Paddleboarding 90 Miles Across Lake Huron 

PADI Women’s Dive Day and the Big Five Dive

Begun in 2015, PADI Women’s Dive Day, held every July 15, has spawned 700 events in 77 countries. The Big Five Dive, held in the Great Lakes in 2016, was one such event.

PADI Women’s Dive Day began in order to strengthen and grow the female dive community. As a result of the initiative, both male and female divers take part in hundreds of events across the globe each year. Part of the second annual event in 2016, the Big Five Dive connected 14 female divers from all walks of life, intent on a mission: to dive an historic site in all five Great Lakes in less than 24 hours.

Can these female divers accomplish this challenging goal within 24 hours?  Come to the Rogers City Theater on Saturday, July 21st starting at 7:30 pm to see if they accomplish their mission.

Stand Up for Great Lakes:  Paddleboard 90 Miles Across Lake Huron

for more information about this non-profit organization, http://www.standupforgreatlakes.com  

In June of 2017 a team of three young men, Joe Lorenz, Kwin Morris, and Jeff Guy along with  their support crew crossed Lake Huron from Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary in Alpena, Michigan to Tobermory, Canada.  This 90 mile crossing wasn't without personal risk and challenges.  These young paddlers used their touring paddleboards to cross Lake Huron unassisted.  It took over 28 hours to complete and they raised over seven thousand dollars to the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary.

Their mission with their non-profit organization is to bring awareness to the threats our Great Lakes face every day.  From industrial and agricultural pollution to storm water runoff and sewage overflow, from invasive species to wasteful water use.  The money raised goes to educate and raise awareness about these amazing Great Lakes.   The Great Lakes are the largest collection of fresh water in the world.  See the documentary film that tells their adventuresome story, battling fatique, exhaustion, and the threat of hypothermia.  And share in the exhilaration of achievement.  

These two featured films are free to the public and are sponsored by the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary in Alpena, Michigan.
