ORLANDO, Fla. – On March 5, 2015, an amazing group of roller derby athletes began a 78-day journey from Cocoa Beach to Santa Monica, California. Skaters, Gracie Cole, Kim Bouldin, Beth Richter and Brenna Eaker are athletes on a mission to raise awareness and funds for the Joyful Heart Foundation.

Joyful Heart Foundation is a non-profit organization working to heal, educate and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse, and to shed light into the darkness that surrounds these issues.

The skating journey will start in Cocoa Beach and average 40 miles each day. They will cross 8 states and skate over 2,800 miles. Besides awareness, the girls are trying to raise $50,000 for the cause. They will be representing the "NO MORE" campaign, a transformative initiative to unite our entire society around the simple message that together we can end domestic violence and sexual assault.

To maximize their impact, they aim to connect with over thirty fellow roller derby leagues, and will be in close communication with local domestic violence advocacy groups and media outlets.
