THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family: Please join me at an event that is very important to me. This October, I will be hosting my Fourth Annual Roll-a-Thon in honor of Johnny Romano, who was a young boy who loved skateboarding as much as I do. Johnny would have been 17 (my age) today had he not died of childhood leukemia seven years ago after a very courageous struggle against the disease. Starting a Roll-a-Thon four years ago taught me how important it is – and how much fun – to give back to others less fortunate than myself. On Sunday October 18th at 12:00 noon, our Roll-a-thon begins at Skatelab Indoor Skatepark and Museum, at 4226 Valley Fair Street, Simi Valley, California. By 1 p.m., we will begin rolling along a scenic route on Simi Valley’s bike path towards Frontier Park about 3.5 miles away. Anyone can participate by riding anything that rolls, like a scooter, bike or skateboard. Upon finishing the 7-mile roll and returning to Skatelab around 3 p.m., the fun will continue. There will be food and drinks, a silent and live auction, and of course skateboarding. We are planning to have some surprise guest pro/am skaters in attendance as well. Don’t forget to wear something RED…it was Johnny’s favorite color. If you choose to support the Roll-a-Thon, your donation will go straight to Johnny Kicks Cancer, a 501(c) charitable organization. JKC will be donating the proceeds from the Roll-a-thon in Johnny’s name to Teen Cancer America (TCA) , which partners with hospitals to create and develop specialized facilities and services for teens and young adults with cancer. Thousands of teens are able to receive peer support and get to interact with other teens at centers funded by TCA. Last time, we exceeded our goal and raised $18,000. This year’s goal is to raise $25,000. We hope to encourage everyone to raise awareness for this cause. You can donate online prior to the event from the homepage of my website – www.alexmidler.com or at www.crowdrise.com/roll-a-thon. You can also bring a check, cash or a credit card to the Roll. I really appreciate you considering joining me on October 18th, or at least making a donation to JKC in honor of the Fourth Annual Roll-a-Thon. Alex Midler
