BENEFITING: Asthma & Allergy Foundation, St. Louis Chapter
The 100+ Project is something I came up with after spending a day paddling the Mississippi river with Dave Cornthwaite. You see Dave started Expedition 1000 where he will undertake 25 separate journeys of 1000miles or more each time using a different form of non-motorized transport. Basically I have stolen his idea and changed it to suit my life. During the project I plan to use different forms of non-motorized transport to travel 100 miles or more. 100+, get it?
The Project will benefit the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America St Louis chapter. I developed an allergy to cats late in my 20's that started with small nuisance symptoms, runny nose, dry eyes, etc. and evolved into asthma. Luckily for me I can stay away from cats and be symptom free. There was a time however when my living situation forced me to live in a house that had a cat so I know what having frequent and ongoing asthma attacks is like. It seems like a no brainer to try and help others that are going through what I went through, but aren't lucky enough to remove the cause of their symptoms.
