Robert De Cou
Robert De Cou, In addition to his passion for ultra endurance sports to raise awareness and build community around important issues, Rob completed a 146 mile run across Death Valley to the top of Mt Whitney to raise   $700,000 for "End Polio Now", Rotary’s global campaign to eradicate polio. He completed a 3,000 mile bicycle race across America and swam over 31 mile across the Strait of Juan de Luca from the U.S to Canada to raise money for other very worthy causes. He also recently cycled over 625 miles in the Race across Oregon, an unforgiving course with nearly 50,000 feet of unending climbing,  raising over $8,000 for the "In Our Backyard,” effort to bring awareness of human trafficking in our area.
