Local Chiropractor Finds prolific way to help sexually abused Children

Many of us make monetary donations or volunteer our time to a worthy cause. However, one man has decided to do something that is unthinkable, so prolific and outrageous it leaves you in shock. Shock, which Dr. John Curtin explains is what he wants his audience to be feeling. “When people are in shock they tend to ask question as to why.” Dr. Curtin feels that if people are asking then their more apt to listen for the answer and agree to support the cause. Dr. John Curtin is a Chiropractic Physician, tri-athlete, and owner of Aligned Chiropractic located off Lake St. Louis blvd, in Lake St Louis, MO. Dr. Curtin serves on many boards such as ‘The Child Center, Inc’, located in Wentzville, the Lake St. Louis Ambassadors, and sits on many chambers and local organizations. Dr. Curtin has decided to dedicate his life to promoting a healthier life for disadvantaged children in his community. “In order to be a pillar, roll model, and a respective business owner, you must be willing to give back to the community you serve, otherwise you’re only setting up shop to take advantage of others. Aligned Chiropractic is here in Lake St. Louis not only helping others with a healthier alternative to health conditions but to build a strong and healthy community.”

Dr. John Curtin has teamed up with Missouri Kids First to promote his Guinness World Record attempt of 100 triathlons in 100 days. Yes, that is correct 100 triathlons in 100 days. He calls this project the P3 Triathlon Tour. The tour will mostly be done here in the Midwest involving Missouri and the surrounding eight states plus Oregon, Arizona and Michigan. The races involve swimming, biking and running. The distances will vary from a sprint (300yd swim, 18 mile bike, 3 mile run) to half Ironman (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, 13.1 mile run).

To prepare for something of this magnitude Dr. Curtin first had to figure out his limiters and find a way to lower the stress his body will have to endure during the 100 days. TrainingBible ran by Joe Friel author of the best selling endurance training book “Training Bible” and world renowned endurance coach along with Sally Drake also a TrainingBible coach located here in St. Louis have teamed up with Dr. Curtin to help with the preparations. Dr. Curtin states that Sally Drake has been a terrific coach and motivator for his training. “Without Sally in my corner I would not have been able to get into my current condition. I have lost 13 lbs raised my VO2max, and increased my endurance. She really did a great job of coaching me right.” Go to to read Sally’s Bio.
