Crossing For A Cure is a long distance paddle spanning 50 miles to help bring awareness to Cystic Fibrosis. A team of 36 paddlers this year will be crossing the Gulfstream from Bimini in the Bahamas back to Dania Beach, Florida on paddle boards.
This event was inspired by 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.
The healing powers of the ocean became fully aware to Travis when he asked their doctor about what activities would be good for Piper’s health. Piper uses a nebulizer with 3% salt saline solution which has been know to extended CF patient’s life expectancy.
Having heard about the event and its cause, Carolyn Stash, President of AtlasTrax USA was looking for ways to get involved. Carolyn donated a SeaTrax II package to the Crossing For A Cure Auction, with proceeds going towards the event. In addition to this, she has provided a fleet of SeaTrax II trackers to broadcast the event in real time. Allowing viewers from home to tune in and follow the incredible journey as it unfolds.
