Miguel Endara met Dave in Miami, 300 metres before the end of the Englishman's 6th adventure of 1000 miles. He loved Dave's story so much he offered to help the cause by making this film. Check out Miguel's amazing films and art on his website.

Swim1000 was the 7th journey of Dave Cornthwaite's Expedition1000 project,

25 non-motorised journeys of 1000 miles of more. Along the way he hopes to raise £1 million for breast cancer charity CoppaFeel!

There we go! That wasn't so hard, was it?!

On August 10th 2012 Dave Cornthwaite jumped into the Missouri River having never swum farther than 100 metres in one go. His team had never paddled on a big river but were right alongside him in a Mad River Canoe and on Lakeshore Stand Up Paddleboards, helping to support Dave & raise funds for the breast cancer awareness charity, CoppaFeel! 58 days and 1001 miles later they reached St Louis, Missouri. This is the story of a true adventure, some good old fashioned British grit, and how ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things if they just say yes.
