A 21-year-old North Carolina man and some friends are skating coast to coast in honor of his late father and to raise money for military families.
Shayne Carlson's journey began Saturday in Virginia Beach. It's expected to take him to Venice Beach, Calif., this summer.
Carlson's father, William "Chief" Carlson, was a CIA contractor who was killed in Afghanistan in 2003.
Shayne Carlson's goal is to travel 50 miles each day, following Interstate 10 and stopping at military bases along the way. He wants to raise $25,000 for a charity that assists wounded soldiers from the U.S. Special Operations Command.
