ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Two women successfully roller skated across Missouri, and they raised thousands for Multiple Sclerosis research in doing so.
Dallis Meyer retired from roller derby a couple of years ago but is still an active skater. She and Melissa Dittberner started in Hannibal and skated into St. Joe around 4 p.m. Sunday.
“I feel great. We stayed pretty hydrated and Pushed through some of the hills that were really tough, and I was really impressed that neither of us really cracked, I never thought that would be possible,” she says.
Meyer says they raised about $2600 for MS research during the skate, both from online and in person donations.
