Zap Team Rider Casey Kiernan is a Champion on and off the water. She has a newfound passion for SUP and recently participated in the Pipers Angels Foundation Crossing for Cystic Fibrosis event. This is a grueling challenge that involves crossing from Florida to the Bahamas and back. She was crowned Champion for her stellar performance and was able to help raise money for the Pipers Angels Foundation.
See below for an excerpt from Pipers Angel Foundation:
"In 2019 & 2020 Casey Kiernan was the dietitian at the local cystic fibrosis clinic which was where she was introduced to the reality of CF and gained a passion for the CF community. Once she learned about Piper's Angels Foundation & The Crossing For Cystic Fibrosis, Casey was inspired to sign up, buy a board, and learn how to paddle as a way to challenge herself, but also to support a good cause that was in sync with her career. As a professional skimboarder, her love for the ocean naturally drew her into the event and built the foundation for her determination.
See how her journey with skimboarding found it's way into a new sport & passion, while guiding her commitment and ultimately clenching the victory of winning the 2021 Crossing For CF, Competitive Solo SUP Division.
