Buffalo, NY - Matt Schreiner came close to losing his father to cancer.
In fact, Matt has seen cancer effect friends and family all around him. So, the 25-year-old Niagara Falls native decided that he needed to help out in some way.
To help raise money for research at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Matt decided to rollerblade almost 400 miles to Yankee Stadium in New York City.
His goal is to raise a half million dollars along the way.
