ACS Walk & Roll Chicago

May 16, 2004
National Skate Patrol (NSP for you newbies) to raise money and skate the only event in Chicago that combines skaters, and bikers. Still walking and biking are more popular then skating in this event but let's change that for next year. Whatdayasay?

Special thanks go out to the folks that donated through me, helping me reach and exceed my modest goals. They are bother and sister-in-law Steve and Gail Ryan, great friends Gwen and Gary Konigsfeld, Gail and Richard Engling, and Ann and Mark Hollander. Thanks guys and gals.
