Welcome to the 2018 Skate A Thon for CROSSING OVER where The DC Wheels and friends will Skateboard 45 miles for Suicide Awareness. Beforehand, skaters will stretch and tune up their boards before the big 9 hour journey at Bethesda Boards at 11am and will prepare take off at noon. Checkpoints with water & some food will be provided every 5 miles until the finish line. This is NOT a race and all skaters are encouraged to take their time to pace themselves and help others along the way. NO one is forced to go beyond their physical limits and ALL skaters are signing liability waivers this year along with possibly contributing money for the shirts being made. You are encouraged to raise money for CROSSING OVER for this upcoming event but you don't accept pledges per mile but pledges for the event in general. The public can donate to the cause towards you so you get fundraisng credit. ABSOLUTELY NO DRUGS OR ALCOHOL. Are you insane? It's 45 miles.
