To all my facebook friends and family! Please read, share, and donate if possible! I have decided to give back my love and ability in the ocean to contribute to a greater cause! I have decided to participate in the Crossing For A Cure as a Prone Paddler. Myself and good friend Lex May will be representing Lake Worth Ocean Rescue.
The Crossing For A Cure is a long-distance endurance paddle challenge that takes paddlers 70 miles across the Gulfstream from Bimini in the Bahamas back to the Florida mainland. The event was inspired because of the incredible health benefits of the Ocean for those living with Cystic Fibrosis. Travis Suit's daughter Piper was diagnosed with CF when she was four years old.
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.
