A small fleet of paddleboarders was out on the water Thursday morning to practice a 75-mile trek from the Bahamas to Florida.
The event, called "Crossing For A Cure," is raising money to fight cystic fibrosis.
On June 16, the paddleboarders will journey from Bimini to Florida.
As of Friday morning, the group has raised more than $153,000.
