Promote Child Abuse Awareness: Run 100 Triathlons

by JWC

Promote Child Abuse Awareness by running 100 triathlons? That was the method John Curtain of Lake St. Louis chose to increase the awareness of child abuse.

Curtain, 41, a chiropractor, sits on the board of The Child Center, an arm of Missouri Kids First, which is a statewide effort to end child abuse. He wanted to do something different; and he sure did. Never before have I heard of such a unique way to increase child abuse awareness.

Imagine running, swimming and biking for 100 consecutive days with no time off for good behaviour.

I take my hat off to Mr. Curtain and congratulate him on his obvious dedication to the cause of child abuse awareness and prevention. We need more people like him, and like the webmaster of this site.
