4 friends will be skateboarding from Anchorage, Alaska, through Canada to La Jolla, California. . We are raising support for veterans in memory of my father, "Chief" Carlson, a special operations soldier killed in Afghanistan in 2003. The non-profit that we are raising money for is the Red Circle Foundation, a non-profit that provides Quick Response Gap Funding for special operations families, as well as scholarships for children whose parent was killed in action. We will be arriving at the annual gala for the Red Circle Foundation on September 6th in La Jolla, CA.
This is our second charity skateboard trip. The first one was called "Chief Coast 2 Coast", where we skated from Wrightsville Beach, NC to Venice Beach, CA raising money for other veterans charities. Here is an interview we had on ESPN First Take.
