Please share this information with anyone who you think might be interested in – or able to help – the Swim1000 Expedition.
British Adventurer Dave Cornthwaite is swimming 1000 miles and his team is paddling 1000 miles down the Lower Missouri this Summer. Dave and his team are seeking support from people who live on and near the river, here are some things you could do to be involved!
• Become a Community Partner
We want to help engage communities along the Missouri by enabling members of the public to join up for a stretch of the journey. We’d like to liaise with paddling and sporting clubs, schools, community initiatives and local businesses to ensure the journey offers benefits to the communities it passes through, as well as setting up events and clean-up projects to leave an environmental legacy.
• Local Liaison
Support from locals is always a binding factor for an expedition like this. Any assistance from setting up events, welcoming or farewell parties, school visits or even accommodation for all or some of the team. Although Dave has a small team working alongside him on this journey (not to mention paddling 1000 miles as they do so) the help of kind strangers will make a huge difference to the journey’s success.
• Sponsor a section of Dave's journey
If you can't join Dave and the team on the Missouri but still want to lend a helping hand, why not sponsor a section of the journey for £1 per mile. You can dedicate your donation to CoppaFeel or one of Dave’s other selected charities, and in return we’ll even send you a picture taken during your very own part of the journey.
• Swim1000! Your own challenge: Swim, paddle, cycle or pedal
As the team moves down the Missouri we'd love you to get out and about, take on your own challenge, do one of the above or combine any number of ways to travel without a motor and get sponsored to help us reach our £100k total for CoppaFeel!
• Book a Talk
Dave has presented his funny, inspirational and motivational story to audiences on five continents. Lectures can be tailored to audiences young and old and we are looking for businesses, schools, clubs, organizations and even groups of friends to host events which will help contribute to the charity total of the project.
• Media Coverage
The more people who know about the Swim1000 Missouri River Expedition the better! If you have links to local or national press, TV or radio please either let them know about Dave’s journey, or even better let us know their details so we can chase them!
