A skateboarder on a cross country trip with a mission passed through Albuquerque on Monday.

Darrian Balongie is raising awareness and funds for St. Jude's Children Research Hospital.

He started in New York City and will end in San Diego in about two weeks.

"I had a little cousin, Christopher Dorian Mitchell, who was diagnosed with Leukemia for his first birthday and he didn't make it to his second," Balongie said in a YouTube video. "So I'm trying to raise some funds and awareness so other kids might."

Balongie hopes to raise $10,000 for cancer research and awareness.
