  Erik Elsea


www.mississippiexpedition.com

Erik Elsea, 41, of Cape Coral, Fla, is passionate about extreme sports and community service. His love for canoeing began as a kid growing up on the Mississippi River near St. Louis and paddling lakes near his home and in the Boundary Waters of Minnesota. The Mississippi Expedition was his first solo paddling adventure and the fulfillment of a childhood dream. He has spoken to more than 75 groups about his paddling adventures and the rich cultural and natural heritage of the river. He is also an Ironman competitor, racecar driver and ultramarathoner. When he's not canoeing, Elsea works to provide families with homes and protect them from natural disasters as a realtor and territory manager for a hurricane protection manufacturer. He is past president of his Rotary Club of Cape Coral, FL and Volunteer Ambassador and Fundraiser of the Year for ShelterBox USA, a disaster relief charity.



Presentations

 Solo at Sunrise: The Mississippi Expedition
Sylvania - main floor Sat 4:30pm-5:15pm 

In 2018, Elsea set out to solo canoe the Mississippi River and raise money for ShelterBox disaster relief. He shares his 90-day adventure experiencing nearly 60 communities along America's most iconic river and the hospitality and tales of 2,350 miles of solo paddling. Learn about the gear he used, how he found sponsors, and the network of strangers he relied on to complete a journey that is attempted by less than a few dozen people a year. Take away tips for completing your own successful fundraising expedition and how to prepare for the impact an expedition will have on the rest of your life.
