Trio skateboarding to Key West to raise awareness, money for cancer research

READ MORE:

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Some friends are skateboarding for cancer.

The group started their journey two weeks ago in Virginia Beach and are heading to Key West, FL.

They don't have an entourage or any support vehicles. Just three guys, their skateboards and their backpacks.

The friends say this is a great way to meet new people and raise awareness for cancer research.

"We all have had people in our families lose from cancer," Sean Barfield said, "and we just want to help people and show people that skateboarders and surfers and stuff aren't all mess-ups and beach bums. We can actually do something good."

The group encourages donations to the American Cancer Society.

They hope to complete what they call "The Cancer Cruise" within the next two months.

You can follow their journey on Facebook.
