So much to say!

Posted by Edwin Friday, July 30, 2010

We've got a lot of progress today, especially with publicity!
Probably one of the biggest things to happen for us today was us being on News 12 New Jersey. I don't actually have their channel (as it is for cable only) but I did a screencapture of their live feed, and I've uploaded it to the newly formed Skate Cape May Youtube Channel. Check it out below:

Very cool! I admit that I was a bit nervous (well actually very nervous) for this, especially since I didn't actually know it would be for television! But thanks to Dawn and Danny (cameraman, not skater!) for making it an easy experience for Danny and I. It was actually surprisingly pleasant!
Hopefully we've been able to reach out to plenty of people and spread awareness of our cause!
If you're reading this now, Thank you once again Dawn and Danny!

There's still been quite an aftershock from the original Star Ledger article, as many more people are requesting interviews and we're also receiving many emails from wonderful people just showing their support, and I'm extremely grateful for that!
This next week will most certainly be a busy one, especially in preparation for Skate Cape May itself.

Aside from the media, I've also made some changes to the site itself. You might have noticed the new twitter widget on the side-bar, as I've created a Twitter for Skate Cape May for us to tweet of all of our doings and during our trip itself! Be sure to follow us!

I've also created a Youtube Channel (which is how I uploaded the video above).

Danny's also made a grand suggestion to determine where we'll be staying. He's suggested that we use an RV to stay in at each stop, and I'm seriously considering it as it seems like a good idea. But we'll have to lock it in later this weekend, so keep posted; we may still need places to stay.

We've still got a lot ahead of us, but things are looking pretty good.
Until tomorrow,
- Edwin

Skate Cape May is a 200+ mile skateboarding journey from the top of New Jersey (High Point) to the bottom (Cape May) with the intent to raise funds for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research. Last year, we received an award as a Top 100 Fundraiser for 2010 for ALSF!
