The Mauli Ola Foundation brings professional surfers and kids with cystic fibrosis together for a unique natural therapy.
Studies have shown that saline in the ocean air helps to clear the lungs for those living with CF. But beyond the physical benefits, I've seen the emotional connections made between surfers, patients and their families to be just as beneficial, giving hope and adding purpose to the lives of everyone involved.
This is the feeling we tried to capture in this video.
