UPDATE: Martin Co. Man Finishes 70 Mile Skate To Raise Money For Christian Roller Rink

Martin County resident Norman Stocks set out to roller skate 70 miles from Greenville to Ahoskie in Hertford County Tuesday.

Stocks told WITN he completed his mission Wednesday around 3:15 pm.

He says the hardest part of the trek was some rocky sections of roadway.

Stocks says he made the trip to raise money for a non-profit Christian roller skating rink he operates in Robersonville.

He says the rink offers kids a place to go and have fun in a safe environment, and that several improvements to the rink are in the works.

He says several businesses have sponsored his ride.
