Expedition Outreach was founded by Michael & Serenity Coyne & is a team of explorers based in New England. Team EO takes the publicity we receive from our extreme sport adventures, races, events & expeditions, and focus's it on worthwhile causes as a charitable organization. We currently help wounded warriors and victims of abuse heal Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as well as survivors of cardiac events who live with heart disease: Since the early 1990's we have travelled the world setting records, first ascents & descents on mountains: Rock & ice climbing, snowboarding, River Boarding & kayaking in white water and in the ocean; SCUBA Diving with Sharks, in ship wrecks, caves & more!
Team leader Michael Coyne set the Guinness Book World Record in ‘1998’, for the highest altitude ‘Luge Run’, down Mount Chacaltaya in Bolivia, and was the first to wakeboard the Amazon River complate with Crocodiles’ & Piranha after traversing the Amazon Jungle. Our team climbed a 'first ascent' up an icy Alaskan Peak in the Wrangell Mountains & named it Mount Hope, in the symbolism of World Peace getting media attention nationwide on ABC with the help of reporter Angie Wyatt.
Times have changed and along with it wisdom has prevailed. We find the only thing worth risking ones life over has to be first and foremost spiritual in nature, and maybe equally, fun. So began our Expedition In-Reach & found that all our charitable endeavors had a simple message in common, that to have Inner Peace gives us domestic peace and this will one day be our world peace. But first, in order to ever have lasting peace in our world, we must all find peace within ourselves.
Extreme sports done mindfully are a moving meditation, a yoga. Team EO uses the media to spread our message & to capture the attention & imaginations of our audience. We show people that by facing ones fears, we can reach their own level of acceptance of fear, and achieve a level of enlightenment, which we feel is the key to all true lasting happiness.
Inner Peace + Domestic Peace = World Peace is our motto, getting high on altitude is our life style!

Face First Angel Jumping
Born from New Zealand and Australian military tactical rappelling, Face First 'Angel Jumping' as some mountaineers call it, is a fun & practical way to descend. My latest project is my Angel Jumping Quest For Wounded Warriors. Helping our veterans, law enforcement, E.M.T.'s and Fire Fighters Cope with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder through the healing power of extreme sports in nature.
