Rolling Coast to Coast For Cancer: In Route to El Paso

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 blood cancer and Huntington's Disease.

 
PRLog - Mar. 23, 2010 - TAMPA, Fla. -- EL PASO, 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".  Having already bladed more than 1,750 miles across America, the team is well on their way towards San Diego, California: their final stop.  The team is expected to be in El Paso this Thursday, March 25.

Alexander Roque, Sr. Manager of Field Development and Operations for the Huntington's Disease Society of America (HDSA), recognizes this journey's importance within the overall efforts of the HDSA.  "In Motion for a Million has been working closely with HDSA to connect with members of the HD community and educating communities in numerous cities in an effort to raise awareness and funds to help put an end to Huntington’s Disease."

After the team rests in El Paso, they will continue on to New Mexico.  Once in New Mexico, the first three cities that the team is scheduled to pass through are Chamberino, La Mesa and San Miguel.  The team is inviting media members to join in on the rollerblading; media may skate along for as long as they would like.

To arrange an interview or to get more information, please contact their tour manager, Phil Repaci at (718) 869-3788 or phil@inmotionforamillion.org.
