On June 16th Team Endless Summer Rum will embark on an epic 70 mile journey on stand up paddle boards (SUP) from Bimini in the Bahamas to Lake Worth, Florida. Led by our founder Matti Anttila (paddling the whole way solo!) we will join an armada or paddlers and boats on The Crossing For A Cure to raise money for families battling Cystic Fibrosis.
The Crossing benefits Pipers Angels, a charity started by Travis Suit to provide vital resources to families battling Cystic Fibrosis and was inspired because of the incredible health benefits of the Ocean for those living with CF. Travis Suit's daughter Piper was diagnosed with CF when she was four years old.
Team Endless Summer Rum’s goal is to raise over $25,000 for Piper’s Angels. As the "Official Rum" of the Crossing we will also be there on the beach for a much needed refreshment as paddlers finish their epic journey! Anyone who contributes $100 or more will receive an official Team Endless Summer Crossing For A Cure t-shirt as a thank you!
We are particularly thankful for team co-sponsors including our industry friends Dixie Vodka and Chickencock American Whiskey, as well as Avid Sportswear and Wingard Creative.
Many thanks for your support!

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.
About Endless Summer Rum
Our mission is to be the most impactful spirit in the world in terms of ocean and beach preservation. That mission drives everything we do, from how our rum is made to the organizations and events we support. Everything starts with making the world's best silver rum. Our search for the perfect silver rum took us all over the world, and led us back to Barbados - the birthplace of rum. We craft our award winning Endless Summer Silver in a distillery on the beach, blending rum from 3 different stills with coral-filtered water from our spring garden aquifer. We do all that to get the exact flavor we want: crisp, clean and exceptionally smooth. Great in any cocktail. And perfect for any beach.
