Memphian longboarding across country for St. Jude

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Darrian Balongie of Memphis is riding his longboard across the country this summer to raise money for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Balongie's riding his longboard from New York City to San Diego. He arrived in Memphis Wednesday afternoon on his cross-country journey.

Balongie said he's skateboarding across the United States for his little cousin, who was diagnosed with cancer and treated at St. Jude.

Unfortunately Balongie's cousin passed away but he says St. Jude took great care of his cousin.

If you would like to assist Balongie in raising money for St. Jude, check out his website, Long Trek for St. Jude: http://gogetfunding.com/project/long-trek-for-st-jude
