Huntington's Disease Society Backs Cross-USA Rollerbladers

Two athletes are rollerblading across the United States, from St. Augustine, Florida, to San Diego, California, in an attempt to raise awareness and at least $1,000,000 for select charities.

March 10, 2010 - PRLog -- KERRVILLE, Texas – Two athletes are attempting to raise one million dollars for Huntington's Disease, Leukemia and Lymphoma, by rollerblading across the USA in a project called "In Motion For A  Million".  A slight delay will get the team to Kerrville, Texas, on Thursday, March 11.   The monies raised will benefit the Huntington’s Disease Society of America and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  The team has already raised several thousands of dollars since the kick off on February 1, 2010, in St. Augustine, Florida.  Within the next couple of months, the journey will find a final destination in San Diego, California.

Alexander Roque, Sr. Manager of Field Development and Operations for the Huntington's Disease Society of America, applauds the compelling efforts of the In Motion team: "The Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) is pleased to recognize the In Motion for a Million Team. This group of dedicated and driven individuals has taken the plight of a terminal brain disease on a cross country journey to share HDSA’s mission, tell HDSA’s story and most importantly offer hope to the thousands of individuals affected by Huntington’s Disease each year."

The In Motion For A Million team is expected to reach Kerrville March 11.  They will continue on to Ingram and Hunt on March 12, with a plan to stop for the night in either Vanderpool or Leakey.  On March 13, the team will plan to continue on to Camp Wood, Montell and Bracketville.  On March 14, the team will shoot to be in Del Rio.

The team is currently inviting willing volunteers to get together and host mini-fundraisers for In Motion For A Million.  Whether the fundraiser is a group of family and friends at someone's house or a community gathering, the team is looking to the people to help them achieve their one million dollar fundraising goal.  If the fundraiser in along the route, the team will plan to stop by.  Otherwise, donations raised can be submitted directly to the www.inmotionforamillion.org site.  In addition, the team is inviting media members to join in on the rollerblading; media may skate along for as long as they would like.
