Breath Of Fresh Air: Skateboarding With Cystic Fibrosis

Beau Rich is The Berrics’ social media manager, and he also manages an invisible disability every day. Rich is a skater with cystic fibrosis, an ailment that impacts his ability to breathe, but instead of taking it easy he has found that skating greatly eases the devastating effects of CF. In this video, Rich shares how he’s coping with the coronavirus pandemic, why social-distancing precautions are critical to his quality of life, and why he’ll never give up skating—something that is literally giving him life right now.

Check out our previous project with Rich from 2018, below:
