On July 12th, 2010 Ari and a team of skateboarders will depart San Diego and attempt to skate across the USA from Newport, Oregon to New York. They will be skating relay style, 100-150 miles a day, with a goal of finishing in under 30 days. All the money raised will be donated to San Diego Youth Services, a San Diego non-profit organization serving homeless youth and youth in crisis. The donations will be used to provide children with consistent and positive mentoring services by ClubXcite mentors who will support them academically and socially as well as build confidence in their strengths and support them through their weaknesses.
This is ClubXcite's first major fund raising event and any type of support is appreciated. Our goal is to raise $20,000. To find out more about the event, donate, or support the cause please visit www.skateacrossusa.com or to learn more about ClubXcite visit www.exciteway.com
The Skaters have made it into Idaho and are still going strong. To check out their progress on the trip complete with pictures, go to their blog at www.skateacrossusa.com/blog
