April 9, 2010 - PRLog -- PHOENIX, Arizona – A pair of rollerbladers who are participants in a project called "In Motion For A  Million" are currently in Phoenix, AZ, as part of a national fundraising campaign.  The athletes are rollerblading across the USA with a goal to raise one million dollars for the Huntington's Disease Society of America as well as the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  To help the team raise donations, generous local sponsors are holding separate fundraisers today and tomorrow.  Today's fundraiser is at 11:00am at Encanto Park at 15th Avenue and Thomas Rd., Phoenix.  Saturday's fundraiser will be held at a Hilton hotel; details are still being firmed up.

"The people of Phoenix have been just amazing! We certainly picked the right city to spend more than one night in.  On behalf of the In Motion For A Million team and survivors of Huntington's Disease, Leukemia and Lymphoma, I thank you, Phoenix, from the bottom of my heart." Dan Bowen - Participant and Co-founder of In Motion For A Million
