Skateboarder Has Decided to Ride 8,000 Miles, Through 35 States, in 100 Days for Cancer
A skater named Mark Williams, who teaches skateboarding over at Goskate, has decided to ride 8,000 miles on his skateboard to raise money for breast cancer. His journey started in Vermont two days ago and goes on to California before returning to Maryland. He will skate about 80 miles per day in honor of his grandmother who passed away due to cancer, and to raise funds for breast cancer research. He's planning on this trip taking him 115 days, AND he plans to enter two skate contests along the way!
This takes some serious commitment! I sure hope he makes it, and that he has an incredible story to share at the end. Check out this article about him and this trip, and the list of where he's going! He's skating through 35 states, so maybe you'll see him.
