Hello all! It’s that time of year where things start grinding down and we start saddling up and the journey starts to begin. This year my boy Lex May and I will be taking on the 80 mile adventure from Bimini back to lake worth as a 2 man prone paddle relay again. Last year was ALL TIME! And you all helped so much with your donations in our efforts to combat Cystic fibrosis and help where we can. Although this is a very tough, mentally and physically challenging, enduring journey it pales in comparison to what the warriors and families living with cystic fibrosis deal with on a day to day basis. This organization is truly the most beautiful thing I’ve ever been apart of and I am over the moon to be participating in the crossing for the second time this year! Any amount helps immensely. No donation to big or too small. The process is easy! Just click the photo and donate what you like. I wholeheartedly believe together we can help make a difference. We fight together. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart - Justin
The Crossing For Cystic Fibrosis 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 fibrosisCystic 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.
