Hey! I'm David and i'll be paddling RIGHT into what seems to be, well, the impossible. From NEVER paddle boarding to crossing 80 miles of OCEAN, in a short 60 days of training and preparation.
Cystic Fibrosis is why. 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.
So. Join the cause & donate to our GoFundMe to further help the effort!
All we ask is for $1. Not 90, not 5000, just ONE stinky dollar.
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.
