Iowan Tackles Everest and More in Unprecedented Adventure
Date:3/31/2010

Charlie Wittmack to embark on 12,000 mile triathlon; global health and education goals.

Des Moines, IA (PRWEB) March 30, 2010 -- Charlie Wittmack, the first Iowan to climb Mount Everest and who made international news in attempting to swim the English Channel in 2008, made it official today. Wittmack announced that he is undertaking environmental, educational and global health challenges as a legacy to his simultaneous, first-of-its-kind intercontinental triathlon set to launch in July.

Wittmack is a world class adventurer, speaker, educator, attorney and family man. This time, emboldened by a vision and sense of responsibility globally, Wittmack will embark on The World Tri, an 11-month expedition during which he will launch a maternal health program in gratitude to the Sherpas and their families in Nepal, develop K-12 curriculum for students across the U.S. and beyond, and then swim, bike and run nearly 12,000 miles through 12 countries, an unprecedented feat even for world-caliber triathlon participants.

The World Tri team begins the expedition Sunday, July 11, 2010 and will end Saturday, June 11, 2011. Wittmack’s team includes his wife, Cate and their two-year-old son, James. Also joining him is award-winning journalist Brian Triplett and filmmaker Andy Stoll. Dozens of physicians and medical students will volunteer their time and expertise to assist with the global health efforts.

Wittmack’s goal for The World Tri is to offer motivation to future generations, and inspires them to make a positive impact—no matter how big or small.
