A Pasco County woman has made it her mission to help victims of domestic violence.
Dee Cooper-Rooney survived it herself, and is now getting ready to take off; she's paddling from Flagler Beach to the state of Maine in her kayak. That's about 1,500 miles total.
Dee is doing it in hopes of raising money, awareness and making a difference in the lives of others.
The money Dee will raise will go to Sunrise of Pasco battered women's shelter.
You can follow Dee's progress and make donations on her website, The Sunshine Paddle.
