On Saturday, June 25 2011, skaters from the Tri-State will have a chance to participate in a long distance skateboard ride to benefit Holy Spirit Orthodox Church's chapter of the Fellowship of St. John the Divine's lunch program. The fellowship prepares and serves lunch for approximately 150 men, women, and children one Saturday each month according to information on the event provided by Lenny on facebook. The nearly 15 mile ride will start at Huntington's Ritter Park and conclude at Central Park in Ashland, Kentucky. While Poage is in the process of setting up a PayPal account for the event donations may be sent to

The Tri-State has a strong longboard and skate community that is always more than willing to help out fellow skaters for a good cause. We hope this event aids the mission to fight hunger.
