J. Wallin’s fundraising event

Uppsala to Copenhagen on Board for Skateistan

Closed

What's it about?

I am skating from Uppsala to Copenhagen to raise money for Skateistan - an organisation that uses skateboarding to help young people in Afghanistan stay in school and better their lives. I will start the 9th of June and expect it to take around 2 weeks.

The route will go from Uppsala through Stockholm and then I will skate by the east coast of Sweden all the way to Malmö. The last day of the journey will be across the bridge from Malmö to finally arrive in Copenhagen.

If you want to meet up or tag along for part of the trip please contact me. I'm also up for stopping along the way and taking reasonable detours if there is an event I can be part of.


Since the start in 2007 Skateistan has given kids in Afghanistan opportunity to skate, practice arts and get back to school.
