SUP – Age 44 – Santa Cruz
What is your favorite paddling spot?
New Brighton to Natural Bridges.
Why did you decide to participate in the Bay for Breath Crossing?
I first decided to participate when I found out that it was a fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis. I have cousins who have CF and I clearly remember that when we would say goodbye at family reunions, it may the last time that I saw them. That was something that I have never forgotten. CF is a hard disease to manage and to live with, and I want to help in any small way that I can.
Do you have a personal connection to Cystic Fibrosis or The Living Breath Foundation?
I have family with CF and now, after paddling in every crossing since the first in 2017, I have a strong connection with The Living Breath Foundation.
