Segway Across America

Journey Across the United States on Ninebot KickScooter MAX by Graham Pollard

Graham Pollard​ (​electric scooter advocate and extreme adventurer) has embarked on ​a 4,000 mile, coast-to-coast journey on the Ninebot KickScooter MAX, with the mission to raise funds for Coronavirus relief.

The adventure began in Yorktown, VA and will end in Florence, OR. The trip is a little more than 4000 miles, and we are predicting it will take approximately two months to complete.

Where Will the Funds Go?

Pollard decided to donate the funds he raises throughout this trip to William Lawrence Camp. Willam Lawrence Camp is a non-profit overnight summer camp located in Tuftonboro, New Hampshire, that has been open for 108 years! Sadly, due to COVID-19, the camp had to close its doors for the first time since opening this summer. Pollard went to this camp as a young boy and then continued on to work there for 8 years. He is now taking this opportunity to give back to a place that helped shape him into the man he is today.

Like many other businesses, William Lawerence Camp is struggling to make ends meet during this nationwide crisis. Pollard has started a gofundme campaign in order to help the summer camp keep its doors open for many generations to come.
