Habitat for Humanity of Schenectady and Genesee Counties in New York will conduct a rollercoaster marathon fundraiser called "Coastin’ 4 Homes" at Six Flags Darien Lake on Friday, June 25, 2004. Twelve riders are participating and will collect pledges/donations ahead of time. Marathon participants will be riding Superman: Ride of Steel. Two riders at a time will brave Superman’s 205-foot, 72 mph drop. Each rider will ride for approximately two hours during the day. The funds raised will be based on the total number of rides completed by the group during the day. Proceeds from the event will be split evenly between the two Habitat for Humanity affiliates. If you have any questions about the marathon or would like to make a pledge/donation, please contact Wade Abbott, at C4H@nycap.rr.com.
