Paddle with Purpose and #InspireEveryBreath!
A special note from me to you:
I am training hard and will be paddling with purpose and all my heart 80 miles across the Ocean in June from Bimini to Lake Worth, Florida supporting Crossing for a Cure and Pipers Angels Foundation, #InspireEveryBreath for those battling Cystic Fibrosis!
I’m just a girl who grew up in Montana far far from the ocean with a dream to impact others!
FIGHT to Breathe: Growing up with Asthma as a young girl I know the feeling of having to fight for each breath. It is very scary and if I can help other children/teens/adults in some way that are fighting for each breath, I’m all in! #InspireEveryBreath
INSPIRE others to overcome obstacles and to keep getting up when they have been knocked down in all the waves of life. I’m going to keep getting back up when I’ve been knocked down! Also I want to Inspire girls to be active and to exercise!
GIVE and be a Bright Light: Help me shine a bright light and fight for the families of CF that are being bold in the face of fear very single day and night. Give any size of donation you can and together we will make a difference. Your generous donation will go directly to: Non-Profit Piper’s Angels Foundation
Once you donate you will get updates from me leading up to the big event in June!
HELP me share this amazing fundraising event with others to be able to impact even more families! Referrals to other individuals or companies that wish to donate greatly appreciated.
THANK YOU, your support, encouragement and generosity means the world to me.
A special thanks to Brenda at Trussence Photography for the beautiful photographs.
Dream Big and lets get out there and Seize the Day!
With Epic Love, Torey
The Crossing For A Cure is a long-distance endurance paddle challenge and international championship that takes paddlers 80 miles across the Gulf Stream from Bimini in the Bahamas back to the Florida mainland in Lake Worth. 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.
