150 miles on a skateboard for Alzheimer's

Postby gavmck » Wed Aug 05, 2009 1:11 pm

Hey guys,

I just thought I'd come over and post this here cos I know ole Terry has Alzheimer's syndrome so I thought people might be interested...

I and a friend will shortly be undertaking a journey of 150 miles on skateboards to raise money/awareness for Alzheimer's. It's a real long way to go on a skateboard and Alzheimer's is a harsh condition so everything any of us can do to help is AWESOME.

If you're interested in donating or just saying hi check out our justgiving site or our website: http://www.canterballs-longboarding.co.uk/wrongwayhome

Cheers all! Lets beat this thing! Push for the cure![/url]

Cheers for the support guys!

All donations are VERY gratefully received, get stoked, cure disease, go skateboarding!

PS. Man, Terry Pratchett books are rad. I haven't read one in a few months, but I'm a big fan of the discworld series. Haven't read as many as I'd like though. Vimes is my favourite character, can anyone reccommend me a good one to read next?

PPS. Donate!

Soul music one of my favourites though, if you like Vimes I reccomend Thud.

I'm going to need a swat team, ready to mobilize, street maps covering the whole of florida, a pot of coffee, 12 jammy dodgers and A FEZ.
