Paul ‘Tosh’ Tanner’s Finathon is One Tough Challenge


From climbing mountains to building sandcastles, Finathon is all about doing whatever inspires you to raise money for ocean protection. PADI Regional Manager, Paul ‘Tosh’ Tanner, has committed himself to doing just that.

“The challenge I have set myself hasn’t got anything to do with sharks, but I feel this may be the hardest physical thing I have ever done.”

Tosh is taking on the first ever Tough Mudder in Asia. For those who aren’t familiar with Tough Mudder, it’s a gruelling 16 – 20km obstacle course designed by the British Special Forces to test physical strength and mental grit. If that doesn’t paint enough of a picture, take a look at this video.

Not only has Tosh set out to complete the course, but he’s also set himself and ambitious fundraising target of $2,000 for Project AWARE. Every dollar raised will help Project AWARE fuel grassroots action and policy change necessary to ensure a clean, healthy ocean planet for us today and for future generations.

Tough Mudder is taking place on October 1st and 2nd and Tosh is already more than halfway to his fundraising target. If you’re able to, you can make a donation to his fundraising efforts here – or perhaps you’d like to register your own Finathon fundraiser.

A huge congratulations to Tosh for this incredible effort and we wish him the very best of luck for tackling the course.
