There's going to be a lot of kicking and pushing across America in the next month, and we're not just talking about the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
A group of 7 skateboarders based in L.A. are setting off today on a ride across the nation that will benefit Friends of Foster Children in Alhambra.
This Great Skate will take them over mountains, deserts and plains, 3,200 miles worth, from ...
... Newport Oregon to New York, according the crew's Facebook page.
"The Rockies are going to be a little intense," skater Marc Juvinall, speaking about the Rocky Mountains, told KTLA News.
He said he expects the skaters to through two pairs of shoes each during the 21-day trek.
They hope to have $20,000 lined up for the charity when it's all over.
Sponsors such as Maui and Sons surf-and-skate shop have already lined up.
