About Dive into the Pink

Dive into the Pink was founded in 2016 by Allison Vitsky Sallmon, a breast cancer survivor, veteran scuba diver, and underwater photographer, who wanted to raise money to fight cancer by mobilizing the scuba community through dive charters and dive-related activities. Dive into the Pink is a salary-free 501c3 nonprofit organization, and 100% of our proceeds are redistributed. In 2018, we raised and distributed nearly $40,000 for the fight against cancer.
