The ‘Discover Scuba’ challenge, organised by the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign to raise funds to fight muscle disease, is aimed at diving beginners and takes place at the Blue Planet Aquarium in Cheshire Oaks.
Those brave enough to swim with a variety of sharks, stingrays and conger eels are being asked to raise a minimum amount of sponsorship at the next available session, which is to be held on Saturday, November 26.
Volunteer fundraising manager Charles Horton said: “Diving with sharks is a great way to raise funds to help the work of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign.
“It also offers a unique opportunity to be part of an amazing underwater safari where you can come face-to-face with one of nature’s most feared creatures of the deep.”
Participants learn the basics of scuba diving among one of Europe’s largest collection of sharks, including 10-foot sand tiger sharks, as well as hundreds of other fish.
About 8,000 children and adults in the North West are directly affected by muscle disease, a condition which causes muscles to progressively waste and weaken. Muscle disease is life-limiting, and there are no cures.
The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign has pioneered the search for treatments and cures for more than 50 years.
