Once the activity was end, we proceeded to award certifications to our participants, Antonio and Ester.
For ending we organised an outdoor lunch at the beach all together at the Restaurant El Racó de Can Margarit, where we share feelings, opinions and jokes … everything accompanied by a big “paella”…. and very close to the sea!
The DDI team of Catalonia was comprised of Antonio Gallardo (Instructor), Sílvia Gimeno (DM-in representation of DDI HQ),
Ester Tarragó (Assistant diver), Eva Casals (Administration), and Xavier Rizo (Instructor – DDI Catalonia Rep.).
Noted that their collaboration was voluntary. We have a goal to show our activity and reach the bigger part of people that want to try it or want to continue to experience diving …
We want to thank the support and warm welcome we had all the time in organizations working with differents disabilities, such as Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, the Step by Step Foundation, the Maresme Foundation, Adapted Sport Fundation and many others have shown a real interest.
Moreover, it also helps to thank our sponsors, the City Hall and the Municipal Swimming Vilassar de Mar, EL Racó de Can Margarit, Nautitracció, Finques Feliu S.L., and in particularly private donations.
We’d like to thank also the interest shown by the media and for their good regional spread of the event: Vilassar Radio, Radio Mataró, Radio Arenys de Munt, Pànxing magazine, among others.
DDI Foundation in Catalonia will continue organizing these events and approaching the wonderful world of diving to people with various disabilities who are curious and interested in this activity. Pictures were taken by Alex Carbonell and Silvia Gimeno.
We will keep you informed promptly and we remind you that your participation is very valuable to us. We look forward to seeing you again at our next day’s diving adapted. See you soon!
