Skateboarding Across America

Jul 10 2003 / Thursday

Skaters Set to Cross America by Board for Lowe Syndrome

On August 2, a team of veteran skaters is poised to make history this summer by pushing their skateboards 3000 miles from Oregon to Virginia. Making the crossing in a little over three weeks, this world record attempt will draw attention to a rare disease known as Lowe Syndrome.

First crossing the nation on skateboard back in 1976, Jack Smith joined two friends on a record-setting push from Lebanon, Oregon, to Williamsburg, Virginia, that spanned thirty-two days. A few years later, Smith teamed with veteran skaters Paul Dunn, Gary Fluitt and Bob Denike to improve his own mark, finishing the coast-to-coast transit in just twenty-six days in a trek that raised funds for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

This year, Smith, Fluitt and Dunn will reunite in August to make a new push for the record books. With teammate Nick Krest, they plan to cut the trans-America skateboard journey to just twenty-one days. But the real difference between this years journey and previous trips is much more personal and heartfelt than ever before.

Skateboarding Across America--On Board for Lowe Syndrome aims to draw attention to a rare genetic disorder that claimed the life of SmithҒs fourteen year-old son, Jack Marshall Smith, in May of this year. Originally known as oculo-cerebro-renal or OCRL syndrome, Lowe Syndrome was identified in 1952 by Dr. Charles Lowe and colleagues. It affects only boys, causing physical and mental handicaps and a range of medical complications.

My son has been an incredible inspiration to myself and many others whose lives he has touched,Ӕ
says Smith.
This is my chance to pay him back for all that he has taught me.Ӕ

To make the journey in a record-setting three weeks, the team will need to cover about 150 miles a day. "This time it will be a lot harder," Smith said. Most of us are in our forties now, we have jobs and families, and pushing a skateboard 150 miles a day isnӒt so easy on old bones." To make this possible, etnies and VAS Entertainment have teamed up with Skateboarding Across America to gain support. All proceeds from the journey will be donated to the Lowe Syndrome Association.
