WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn. -- He plans on skating about fifty miles daily.  That's two marathons per day, for three months straight. 

In all it's a trek on Rollerblades that will take Chris Lomen 4000 miles from Minnesota to Maine and all the way down to Key West.

This St. Olaf alum grew up playing hockey, so he's always been an avid skater.  But this isn't just a sightseeing trip for Lomen.  He is doing it as a fundraiser. 

Lomen hopes to raise $100,000 for Outreach International.  The goal, to help rebuild between 8 to 10 of the 20 or so schools that were destroyed by the earthquake in Haiti earlier this year.

He will leave from Stillwater on Tuesday morning and will have a road crew driving nearby as he begins his cross country trek.  He will also be blogging and shooting video along the journey that will be featured on his website.
