The 2013 Icelandic Wild Heart Expedition
Expedition Outreach, a charitable organization founded in 1995 will be setting out on expedition in August of 2013 to climb Iceland's highest peak, dive & set the Guinness Book World Record for the fastest 'Alpine' face first Luge. Team Leader Michael Coyne currently holds the 'Official' World Record for the highest altitude Luge run in Bolivia. The team's mission is to raise awareness of heart disease testing & raise money to save the endangered Cheetah.
Team E/O is a group of environmentally conscious explorers & athletes who educate people about the World Peace Process & other worthwhile causes by taking the publicity they receive from their 'extreme' sporting & mountaineering adventures, expeditions, races & events & focus it on education & awareness: From broadcasting live from the summit of a previously unclimbed peak in Alaska across the nation on ABC Television to being the first to Wakeboard the Amazon River & wreck diving in Iceberg Alley, they first capture the attention & imaginations of their audience.
A few years ago Michael had heart failure in the transition zone of a triathlon equivalent to 2 massive heart attacks that was related to an on the job assault that happened in uniform as a Massachusetts State Trooper, when a man tried to kill him because of his uniform. "As a lifelong athlete I was devastated". Michael stated but he is now retired young & training full time for Iceland, determined to come back stronger than ever: Inspiring all those who have experienced adversity in their lives.
Iceland is only the first of a series of expeditions that will take Team E/O across the globe from Costa Rica to New Zealand & Africa. The team will be filming for a documentary project about facing our fears & understanding the nature of our planet & our own hearts.
