Local News

Two friends are now rollerblading across several states in order to raise money for the American Cancer Society’s life saving mission.

Andrew Walker and Jacob Adkins are roommates at U Mass Boston. Thesse two individuals left bean town early on Monday morning and will travel nearly 900 miles to Mason, Michigan.

This is a journey that will take them about ten days. Both of these individuals have family members who died of cancer.

In the midst of their travel, both Walker and Adkins made a stop in Meadville on July 18th.

“During quarantine, we just got roller blades. We kind of had our hands tied with what to do and we thought doing something for a cause would be amazing,” said Andrew Walker, U Mass Boston Student.
