Mississippi Source to Sea Solo Expedition Underway

LouAnne Harris Raises fund for Rivers for Change

We were first inspired by the dynamic duo of LouAnne Harris and Jules Gismondi – the Atlantic SuperGirls – about four years ago when they paddled from New York City to Miami. Harris has recently embarked on another long distance journey, but this time solo.  The SIC ambassador and paddle instructor is doing a source-to-sea expedition down the Mississippi to raise funds for Rivers For Change. Rivers for Change is a non-profit organization that works to connect individuals and communities to rivers and promote source to sea literacy through adventure, conservation, and education.

You can follow Harris’ journey via Facebook, where she recently posted a great video on the importance of strategic and flexible planning when doing a big water crossing. You can also donate via the expedition GoFundMe page.

We look forward to cheering Harris on and will post updates on her progress!
