Run 4 Sharks & Ocean Protection

Practicing for her upcoming Iron Man Triathlon, Maria Korcsmaros was attacked by a Great White Shark at Corona Del Mar swim line on May 29th, 2016. Two years later, she has become a huge advocate for shark conservation and ocean protection. Maria has dedicated herself to learning as much as she can about the bio-diversity of the ocean, sharks and marine life with the help of Shark Stewards founder, David McGuire. David has helped develop policies pertaining to cage diving with sharks around the world. He is also active against the Shark Fin Trade, which randomly kills sharks for their fins and leaving them to die.

Maria has organized an event to raise awareness of the threats to our oceans, pollution concerns, loss of habitats, reefs, sharks, and all marine creatures. She has been consulting with others, such as Ian Cairns, to help humans and marine life coexist together.
