Sophie Holmes was our main inspiration for setting up Banana Crumble and definitely the reason we chose to raise money for The Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
We have always featured Sophie’s challenges and fundraising and thought it was about time we brought you up to date with her latest fundraising event and yet another amazing feat that she has set herself.
For those of you who don’t know about Sophie then click here to find out more. Sophie is taking part in the Crossing For A Cure endurance challenge. If you want to sponsor Sophie then here is the link
The Crossing For A Cure 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 (the event organiser) daughter Piper was diagnosed with CF when she was four years old. On the Crossing For A Cure website it states:
“The Crossing for a Cure provided a great opportunity to show that no matter what obstacles we face in life, we can always use the gift of choice to persevere.”
Sophie leaves for Florida today (Thursday) and we would like to wish her and the rest of the paddlers all the best of luck as they take part and complete what will be an amazing venture. Hopefully when Sophie returns we can get some photos and information about the trip.
