Rollerblading Coast to Coast for Causes: Athletes Enter Arizona
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.
Andrea Greif, Director of Public Relations for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, applauds the tremendous effort of In Motion For A Million co-founders and participants, Dan Bowen and Steven Feigenbaum. “Since its inception, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has funded more than $680 million in cancer research funding. The need is critical: an estimated 912,938 people in the United States are living with, or are in remission from, leukemia, Hodgkin lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma or myeloma. The decision to take on this challenge is truly inspirational and it seems like they're having quite a bit of fun while also doing something significant for two very important causes."
The anticipated route for the team while skating through Arizona is: Three Way, Solomon, Safford, Thatcher, Pima, Fort Thomas, Geronimo, Bylas, Peridot, Globe, Claypool, Miami, Superior, Florence Junction, Apache Junction, Mesa, Tempe, Phoenix, Glendale, Peoria, Surprise, Wittmann, Morristown, Wickenberg, Aguila, Wenden, Salome, Harcuvar, Hope, Brenda, Quartzsite and Ehrenberg.
The team is inviting media members to join in on the rollerblading;
