Skate4Cancer In New Zealand Press Release
* Originating in 2004, Skate4Cancer is a not for profit grassroots organization that raises awareness of cancer, primarily targeting a youth demographic. We operate by skateboarding the width or length of a country (whichever is longest) in order to draw attention to our cause. Once that is accomplished, we promote a variety of campaigns that focus on healthy and preventative lifestyles ranging from self-breast examinations to healthy eating.
* After covering the majority of North America, we’ve decided to take on the world. Beginning in early January, we’ll be skating from Auckland to Dunedin. That means skateboarding every Kilometre, never skipping any portion. After that, we head to Australia to face one of the biggest challenges yet!
* Our website ( offers a comprehensive detailing of our mission, history as well as other important information. Currently, the most vital tool for our cause is publicity. If we gather attention, we can mobilize young people and start saving lives. If your organization is at all interested in covering our skate, please contact:
