Spina Group Raises $26,000 Paddle Boarding Across The Gulf Stream

Brothers paddled from Bimini to Palm Beach to support Cystic Fibrosis

Along with a fleet of stand up paddle boarders, kayakers and board enthusiasts, Kevin Spina of the Keyes Company’s Spina Group, accompanied by his brother Kraig, crossed the Gulf Stream in the middle of the night to help raise $26,390 for Cystic Fibrosis during the Piper’s Angels Foundation’s 2018 Crossing for a Cure. The team exceeded their goal by more than $6,000.

In just 15 hours, the Spina brothers completed the 75-nautical mile journey from Bimini to Palm Beach on stand up paddle boards.

“After 59 years, you run out of unique birthday celebration ideas,” said Kevin. I wanted to do something that would have a meaningful impact. Every little bit gets us one step closer to finding a cure and helping members of the Cystic Fibrosis community.”



Crossing for a Cure was started by Travis Suit, whose daughter, Piper, was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age of four. This year, the event raised more than $250,000 towards inspiring action and improving the lives of those impacted by the disorder.

For the past 20 years, Kevin has been no stranger to athletic challenges, having completed over 20 marathons, numerous triathlons is an avid runner and cyclist. When not facing a physical feat, he is busy leading The Spina Group. Founded in 2009, the team has closed more than $300 million in transactions, averaging over $1 million dollars in real estate closings per week.

“Our Keyes family is about more than just real estate,” said Mike Pappas, President, and CEO of The Keyes Company. “It’s always great to see members of our family raising money and awareness for important causes, and Kevin’s dedication to Crossing for a Cure perfectly epitomizes our company values.”

The Keyes Company holds several philanthropic Keyes Cares initiatives throughout the year to give back in the six counties they operate in. With a variety of events on different scales, including the Keyes Cares Walter Reyes Memorial Golf Tournament, the Dolphins Cancer Challenge, partnering with Move for Hunger, the Wounded Warrior Project and Over the Edge, Keyes hopes to spark innovative, passionate ideas to encourage community service to its 3,500 associates.
