Stahl, a member of the Allendale Saddle River Rotary Club, has endorsed this type of revitalization. After undergoing specialized training in which one learns how to administer to those with disabilities, she ventured forth into this worthwhile and redeeming cause. The weightlessness of water buoyancy gives confidence to the person with impairments.
She cited a case where a person with no arms was introduced to scuba diving, even to the extent of going deep sea diving. When Diveheart encounters situations like this, they assign two instructors. Why two, one would ask? They assign two as a precaution, should one instructor encounter difficulties, both personal and underwater problems, the other one is still available to get their charge safely back.
Since they are a volunteer organization, they depend upon the freewill and fundraising contributions to continue their good work. While donations are tax-deductible, volunteer FRIENDS can assist by getting involved in many ways. Go to www.diveheart.com to learn more about Diveheart or e-mail [email protected] to get involved.
