Three Ark Valley High Rollers are back in their street shoes after 78 days of skating from the Atlantic to the Pacific Coast.

Their roller derby teammates, friends and some people who were just plain curious packed into Café Dawn Monday for their return party to see a slide show of the trio’s last 3½ months.

The “States on Skates” journey was not a leisurely jaunt, but a mission to make a statement and raise a solid donation to an organization they’re passionate about. The funds they’ve raised are going to the Joyful Heart Foundation, a nonprofit that works with victims of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse.
