The skating community in Charlotte, NC has been touched by cancer in so many ways. Our skating family has lost some amazing people to this dreaded disease, but, we also have many survivors to celebrate! We decided to take on the Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer Challenge to help Turn Cancer Upside Down. Our hope is the money we raise will fund research and provide support, so that someday no one has to be touched by cancer!
