Forever Stoke Scholarships
The Piper’s Angels Foundation created the Forever Stoke Scholarships program to provide positive experiences in a natural healing salt environment, while also empowering the person with cystic fibrosis to develop skill sets that can become a lifelong gift. Participating in saltwater activities has been scientifically proven to increase respiratory health and provide a natural therapy for healing in a positive environment. Establishing this interest and skill set is critical at an early age before lung function decreases.
I simply cannot thank Piper’s Angels enough for providing me with a Forever Stoke Scholarship last year. Receiving that allowed me to get the paddleboard of my dreams and it laid the pathway for me participating in the Crossing for Cystic Fibrosis last year. The Crossing was something that I did not know that I even wanted to do but once I began to find out more and more about it I realized that it was definitely a worthy goal and a challenge that I readily accepted. What I didn’t know was that the experience was a lot more than the actual Crossing itself. Getting to meet and interact with the people who make this event happen each year and getting to meet and get to know Piper herself was all part of this amazing journey.
I will never forget that experience and I loved it so much I’m going back again in 2022!
