Bahamas-Florida Paddleboard Trip For Charity

Over the years, Travis Suit has always tried to help different charities, but in November 2011 he found out his daughter, Piper, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis.

CF is a disease that can cause problems with the lungs and the pancreas, and for a child diagnosed with this disorder the average life expectance is less than 40 years of age.

That was why he decided to participate in The Crossing for a Cure, an event that will help to raise funds for cystic fibrosis research.

Suit is preparing to stand-up paddleboard from the clear tropical waters of the Bahamas back to South Florida.

The trip is approximately 90 miles across the open Atlantic Ocean, and runs through the Gulf Stream.
