Skaiti - skaters raising money for Haiti

We thought this worthwhile project deserved a big mention - even if we just spread the word a tiny bit more...

http://roundupbout.blogspot.com/ are advertising Skaiti - a twenty-four hour fundraising event for the victims of the Haiti earthquakes.

"When? Saturday April 10th at noon
Where? Dunsfold Park Aerodrome, Surrey - the famous Top Gear test track
Who? Anyone who skates - rollerskaters, inliners, longboarders and skateboarders

The aim is to raise as much money as possible to help the disaster relief in Haiti, whilst skating around the clock. All money raised will go to the charity Shelterbox, and it doesn't matter if you can't make all twenty-four hours of the event.

Camping is available on the site, and the runway lights will be switched on at night, so don't worry about skating in the dark!
All you have to do to take part, is raise your sponsorship, and turn up on the day! Please email the organisers at skaiti24@yahoo.co.uk to let them know that you'll be turning up.

If you'd rather raise your money online, it can be paid into JustGiving, check http://roundupbout.blogspot.com/ for details

Minimum sponsorship is £20 per person, but everyone who raises over £50 will be entered into a prize draw, so please make sure your sponsors who go to JustGiving to donate write YOUR NAMR against the donation.

Please spread the word, there's space on the track for 250 skaters."

Good luck to the organisers & the participants, it sounds like it will be one heck of an event!
