The Thank You's!

Posted by Edwin Thursday, August 19, 2010

This is the part where I'm going to be thanking the fantastic people that made Skate Cape May possible!

First of all, I would definitely have to thank my parents and Danny's parents and Danny's family for all of the support they've shown over the past 9 days. They've been behind us the entire time and they've all done a great job following us and making sure we're safe. Even though we didn't necessarily enjoy the fact that we had to be "chaperoned" on our trip. But its all a part of safety and its good to see them caring!

I would also like to thank Colin Taylor, who is a marketing manager from Great American Volleyball, who did a lot of calling and got us a lot of sponsors! He's gotten us the support from CamelBak with free backpacks, a ridiculous amount of SmartWater and VitaminWater, and even a care package from Red Bull! Colin has also helped to get our lemonade stand location in front of Heritage Surf Shop, get an interview with NBC40 Atlantic City, have a fundraiser at JC's Grill House, and even get shirts donated to us from UniServ Advertising! His help has certainly been invaluable.

I would also like to thank those who have provided us with lodging: To Holiday Inn Express in Newton, Danny's family for the apartment in Chester, John at DiGennis Centennial House, and Amanda for getting us a stay in her cousin's beach house near Cape May!

And lastly, I'd like to thank the many people who have been following us and the people who have been so considerate as to making a donation or simply by supporting us in any way possible. If it weren't for our followers or our readers or the amazing generosity of the people, our fundraiser would not have been nearly as successful as it was!


For whatever reason that slipped my mind, I completely forgot to mention Original Skateboards and the tremendous help that they've been over the course of our trip and beforehand! They have provided us with great boards and great equipment. They've also been extremely proactive in our efforts to raise money for our cause, especially evident in our first stand in Newton, where pretty much everyone came out to help!
They've also been great at following us and also filming what we've been doing, and they are also making a video about us to help spread awareness of what we've been doing.
Its truly amazing how much support they've shown!
And I would definitely like to thank Original for being such such a huge part of our event;

So thank you everybody! Its been an absolute pleasure!

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!
