It's late on Tuesday evening and I really need to get packed and head down to San Pedro since the day starts early, but wanted to get out this update before I left. It's been quite a day (in more ways than one).

In addition to Troy's $2K donation, we received a wonderful $500 donation from our friends at Skin Diver Magazine, a $200 donation from Mike Brennan, and a $100 donation from good friend George Horn who owns Scuba Divine in Brooklyn, New York. And when all was said and done, we were at $18,980. Being a fan of round numbers, I dug into my own checkbook for $20 so I could say . . .

WE'RE AT $19,000!!!!!

Nothing would please me more than to return tomorrow evening and see that we've hot $20,000. And you can help make it happen because you can still donate to the Challenge. just give us a call at 310/652-4990 and help us honor the memory and work of Jon Hardy.
