Longboarding USA is a journey that two brothers from Mt. Pleasant, North Carolina are taking to spread awareness for various charities and ideas that break away from common everyday commotion. Caleb and Tanner Childs are setting off from Wilmington, NC and hoping to finish in San Francisco, CA. Along the way they will attempt to encourage donations and an adventurous lifestyle to the many friends they will make.
To raise awareness of present day issues and build support for an on-going cause
Who are We?
Caleb Childs is, before anything else, a believer and follower of Jesus Christ. He graduated from N.C. State University in 2008 and has worked multiple jobs since, which has led him to believe, much like his brother, that there is more to life than just working a 9 to 5 with the same routine, day in and day out. The chance to walk across America definitely breaks that routine and, more importantly, is a great way to raise awareness and support for a couple of very worthy causes.
Tanner Childs is a student at UNC Charlotte and will be graduating in May 2012. At the age of 19 he realized that life was more than just clocking in to work everyday and saving up money to buy materialistic things that can’t go with him when he dies. Quickly he came up with the idea to walk across America to spread his ideas of how people should find more to life other than a 9 to 5. He also wants to show people how good deeds such as supporting charities gives a happier feeling and a better outlook on life.
