We are fundraising to promote living like Benjo, saving lives by raising awareness about shallow water blackouts, and putting a smile on a child's face.

The Live Like Benjo Foundation was created in October of 2014 after the tragic death of Benjamin C. "Benjo" Haller (pictured above) of Underhill Center, Vermont after succumbing to a Shallow Water Blackout . Benjo was a lifelong sailor, diver, water-lover, sailing instructor, and a SCUBA instructor with over 1,500 dives. After realizing his lifelong dream of sailing thousands of miles from Malletts Bay, VT, to the Bahamas, Benjo drowned in only seven feet of water while spearfishing on Harbour Island on August 1, 2014. He was 27 and in his few short years he lived a life that most of us can only dream about. For more information about his life click here
