raised of £6,850 target by 133 supporters

    Weʼve raised £2,525 to promote unity and skate 685 miles against hate. Inspired by Ledger Smith and echoing his support of the Civil Rights Movement.

    Funded on Friday, 23rd October 2020

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    We are a group of 50 skaters in the North East who are determined to skate a collective 685 miles throughout July to raise funds, inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, for two charities who work to overcome oppression and discrimination.

    Inspired by the story of Ledger Smith who, in August 1963, skated 685 miles from Chicago to Washington DC in only 10 days to attend the civil rights movement rally and hear the famous ‘I have a dream’ speech by Martin Luther King Jr.

    You can read his amazing story here-

    With skaters from local roller derby teams and others who have never even skated before! This is a true challenge for everyone involved!

    We are all in this together, but socially distanced, with a clear message to SKATE AGAINST HATE!

    Throughout July 2020 we will each skate a minimum of 15 miles, or 3.9 miles per week to reach the full team goal! You can keep an eye on each skaters weekly progress on our Facebook page –

    All proceeds will be equally split between 2 amazing charitites the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust and Angelou Centre!

    "Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust work with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds aged 13 to 30 to inspire and enable them to succeed in the career of their choice. We also influence others to create a fairer society in which everyone, regardless of their background, can flourish."

    "The Angelou Centre is a Black-led women’s NGO based in Newcastle Upon Tyne. They offer a range of holistic women only services for BME women across the region. They also work at strategic and national levels ensuring the voices of BME women are represented."

    Keep our skaters rolling by sharing our challenge and Ledger Smith's story as much as you can! Help us support these amazing organisations, campaign against racism and raise awareness of the work still left to do to achieve racial equality. Let's carry on Ledger's strong message and skate against hate!

    Spread the word and please donate what you can!
