This Skateboarder Rode 450 Miles To Honour His Brother In The Best Way Imaginable….

When his brother died of Leukemia, Jason Sherman, decided to quit his job and skateboard 450 miles from their New York home to the childhood summer camp they used to attend in New Hampshire.

Eric Sherman was diagnosed with the disease at the age of 17 and courageously battled with the disease for four years, dying in 2010.

Jason is raising money so that children can attend the camp who would otherwise be unable to. So far $17,000 has been raised, with $33,000 more to go before they reach their target.

Corey, Jason’s other brother, accompanied him for some of the trip, which happened between September and October this year. They stopped by memorable places from their childhood, such as their old house in Newbury, Connecticut.

The boys grew up making skate videos of each other in their back yard. The combination of skating, filming and adventure was the perfect way to remember their brother.

Watch the short documentary about the trip above, but be prepared- this one’s a tear-jerker.
