Uniting the water world champions together was an integral part of structuring the foundations for the 'Godfathers of the Ocean' to be capable of achieving our primary goal in raising awareness and funds for various charities worldwide. We are proud of the history of our charity events, both at home and abroad, bringing together the water world champions with a common goal to help others in need. These events that we held yearly for over a decade, will always hold a special place in the legacy of Godfathers of the Ocean, and we could not have done this without our fellow athletes, friends, sponsors, and family, who supported us yearly.  We will always be forever grateful.
