Unfortunate News...

Posted by Edwin Sunday, August 7, 2011

Although we've been pushing towards active participation for Skate Cape May this year, after a meeting of our families and quite some discussion, it has been deemed something we simply won't be able to do this year.

The issue here stems from liability as Skate Cape May is indeed a potentially dangerous event with very real risk of injury and even death while skating on the road with cars all around. Without any form of real insurance our families can't be held responsible in the off chance something were to happen and someone decided to sue. We all agree that safety, being our main priority, greatly reduces the risk of anything like this happening but nevertheless we can't take that risk should there be any extreme circumstances.

So, as sad as I am to say, we will not be allowing people to officially join us while skating. Sorry to those who have been asking.

We will still be tweeting regularly our location for those following us, and we would love it if people would come visit us at our lemonade stand locations!

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!
