On June 27th of this year, I will again be participating in the CROSSING FOR CYSTIC FIBROSIS, although a little differently this year.
Regrettably, I will not be paddling this year.
My role this year will primarily be a SUPPORT role for the foundation overall - and the PAF/Team HALO boat will be getting REBRANDED and will be the flagship 'check-in' boat at Lake Worth Beach for all paddlers.
As we have taken on a key ATLANTIC LEVEL SPONSOR with CELSIUS Energy Drinks - we will be rebranding the boat and will serve in a support capacity for 2021 - supporting the other paddlers, and supporting the overall mission of PAF.
YES!!! 2021 - The Year of All GREAT Things!
Love. Compassion. Trust. Empathy.
If we woke up tomorrow giving more to the world than we took from it - imagine the ABUNDANCE we would feel.
I can't put into words the impact this event has had on me the last two years. The people I have met, the people that YOU'VE impacted by your support.
Thank you in advance for your support - THANK you for your support in the past. HERE is to an EPIC ADVENTURE!!!!!
"The Crossing For A 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 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."
