THE STORY:

Friends & Family,

On June 18th, I invite you to join me as I embark on a new venture in life, The Crossing For A Cure. The Crossing For A Cure is a long-distance endurance paddle challenge that takes paddlers 50 miles across the Gulfstream from Bimini in the Bahamas to the Florida mainland. This event was inspired because of the incredible health benefits of the Ocean for those living with Cystic Fibrosis. Entrepreneur, motivator and someone I am proud to call my new friend, Travis Suit's daughter Piper was diagnosed with CF when she was four years old.  We are paddling for Piper and everyone out there who battles CF every day.
Marrying the passion I have for the ocean and paddling, together with a purpose as strong as this, is a true privilege. 


Please help me support Travis, Piper and Pipers Angels Foundation by following the link below. 


Travis asked us one question before completing registration and I believe these words sum up my emotions:  WHY are you excited about the Crossing For A Cure?: 


With great intention, our possibilities are limitless. 


Thank You,
Austin P. Grippo

About Cystic Fibrosis

 

Cystic fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. In people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick, buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage and eventually, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, the mucus prevents the release of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients.
