March 29, 2010 - PRLog -- 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".  The athletes will be leaving for New Mexico in the morning of Tuesday, March 30 and are expected to skate to Las Cruces by the late afternoon/evening.

"The IMFM team is pleased to be closing in on 2000 total miles.  Texas has been a very fun and interesting state to roll through for the past month, and we're continuing on with a good pace.  We are excited to soon be hitting New Mexico and taking in all of the wonderful things that a new state has to offer." Steven Feigenbaum, Co-founder of IMFM and Participant

The team will enter New Mexico through Chamberino; they will continue on through La Mesa, San Miguel and Mesilla before stopping in Las Cruces for the night.  On Wednesday, March 31, the athletes will continue on with their first stop of the morning being in Radium Springs.
