Victoria Burgess is on a mission to paddleboard from Cuba to Key West in a little more than a day. A group on a boat will follow her to make sure she stays safe in the water, especially now that it’s hurricane season. “I hope to help U.S.-Cuba friendship,” Burgess said. “That’s what I’m here for.
Friendship and love and to bring hope to everybody between the U.S. and Cuba and to show hope to women all around the world that anything can be done.”
