On October 6th 2012 Dave Cornthwaite completed a 1004 mile swim down the Lower Missouri River, alongside him were a team of superstars paddling on Lakeshore Stand Up Paddleboards and in a Mad River canoe. We went for 58 days. Camped on sandbars. Sheltered from storms. Battled through heat exposure and then freezing temperatures, not to mention obstacles in the water and the difficulties of travelling so far, so slowly! We continue to fundraise for CoppaFeel and your donations are gratefully accepted. The team have committed to continuing the effort through new, exciting adventures. We're aiming to raise £100,000 for CoppaFeel!'s amazing, creative work towards raising awareness of early detection of breast cancer in young people. There's is a challenge much greater than ours, but we'd like to do our bit and hope you'll help us all achieve our goals.So, £100 per mile for 1000 miles. Your support means a great deal to us and to CoppaFeel! and in return we hope you enjoy following our progress down the Lower Missouri. Follow our Tweets, updates on Facebook and watch our videos throughout the journey.
