The mission of Dive Around the Clock (DATC) is to bring together the scuba diving community for an annual 24-hour scuba diving relay dive-a-thon charity event with the aim of educating and raising awareness about childhood cancer and to raise funds, benefiting Children’s Cancer Research, to be used to advance medical research into the diagnosis, treatment and cure of childhood cancers.
The vision of Dive Around the Clock (DATC) is to see a day when children and their parents no longer see childhood cancers as life-threatening, where treatment of such is non-evasive and to ultimately see a world without childhood cancers.
Now a huge community event with volunteers and participants from all different shops, clubs and areas, DATC boasts more than 100 divers coming together each year! The event is orignally the brainchild of good friends and fellow instructors, Kyle Larson and Larry Trenda. In 2006, eager to bring the Puget Sound Scuba Dive community together, regardless of shop affiliation or club membership, they wanted to find a way to gather everyone and give back to the community. After tons of searching and reviewing candidates, Seattle Children's Hospital, specifically their Cancer Research Program was finally chosen as the beneficiary.
