A few words from the team on the purpose of their journey.

Why are we pushing our skateboards across America?
In October of 2012 my father, and Dylan's grandfather, Jack Smith, passed away due to complications from Alzheimer's Disease.
We are making this push in his honor and to raise awareness and $100,000 in research funds for Alzheimer's Disease.

On July 4th, 2013, our five person team, ranging in age from 20 to 56 will come together to push our skateboards 3,000 miles
from Newport, Oregon to New York City, New York in a little over three weeks.

Thanks for your consideration and support!

Jack, Dylan, Melanie, Colleen and Marc
