WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Two best friends from Whitewater, Wisconsin, took off 8 days ago, bound for a 3 month mission to raise money for breast cancer research.

On Friday, they skated through Waterloo.

They're hoping to raise $10,000 dollars for the cause, through WorldAlive.org.

We found that breast cancer is something that has really affected a lot of people that we know, friends and family and things like that and we though that we put this together and do something's we though could really help a lot of people,'' said Jerold Gaches.

The two have 2,400 miles left on their journey, set to end in California.

They carry all supplies on their back.
