Adaptive Diving & Mary Free Bed Hospital

On Saturday, December 16, several Michigan Underwater Divers (MUD) divers and Scuba Obsessed Podcast listeners, had the privilege of working with Tim Marr and Paul Kuiper of West Michigan Adaptive Diving, during the scuba clinic held at the East Grand Rapids High School swimming facility.

The clinic offered children, adults, and veterans with disabilities the chance to experience scuba diving. West Michigan Adaptive Diving, founded by Tim Marr of Altek Sports & Scuba of Zeeland, conducted the day-long session, in cooperation with Christy VanHaver of Mary Free Bed Hospital.

The goal of the Adaptive program is to get people with disabilities in the pool and give them an experience that they may never have had and to help people who others have placed limits on to realize there are no limits.

Here are a few pictures from the clinic:
