Those who think Downtown Development Authority Executive Director Raphael Clemente walks on water have one more reason to believe.
Clemente will be one of 30 locals paddleboarding from The Bahamas to South Florida on Father’s Day weekend, to raise money and awareness for cystic fibrosis.
The group plans to cross the Gulf Stream from Bimini to Dania Beach. They’ll be led by Travis Suit, who started Crossing For A Cure through Piper’s Angels, a foundation he set up to raise money and awareness for cystic fibrosis. His daughter, Piper, was diagnosed at the age of four in 2011 with an aggressive form of CF known as the double delta F508 gene.
Other locals planning to make the 50-mile crossing include Bradley’s restaurateur Nick Coniglio, and a group called group called Shark Addicts, out of Jupiter.
West Palm sponsors include Roxy’s and Hamilton Jewelers.
