"A Push to Remember" team heading to Indiana

July 24, 2013 

Morro Bay resident Jack Smith is skateboarding across America to raise money for Alzheimer's research. Smith and his "A Push to Remember" team is hoping to raise $100,000 on their three-week trek from Oregon to New York. For the team's route and other information, visit http://www.apushtoremember.com/. Smith's updates on the trip will continue to be posted at http://sanluisobispo.com/.

As soon as we pick up the support van, we will drive to Peru, Indiana to begin pushing again. It feels really weird to not have pushed for the last day and a half. The folks at the Beloit Holiday Inn Express have been wonderful, allowing us to hang out until the van is repaired. Scott at "The Shop" in Beloit has went above and beyond the call of duty in his efforts to get us rolling again.

Tish, a local resident of Peru, Indiana has been very helpful in helping us find lodging. Hopefully are auto issues are behind us.

Thanks for the support and positive vibes!
