It seems like everyone is going pink these days in support of breast cancer awareness, and apparently skateboarders didn't want to be left out. Tomorrow, local nonprofit Boarding for Breast Cancer will play host to an 18-mile skateboard ride down the Pacific coast, beginning in Santa Monica and ending in Redondo Beach, intended to raise funds and awareness for the disease.

The event is called Skate the Coast and participants will begin congregating at around 8 a.m. at Veterans Park near the Redondo Beach Pier, where they'll be shuttled up to Santa Moncia. An afterparty is scheduled to start at about 3 p.m. at Wahoo’s Fish Tacos.
