‘Bladress’ Skates From Miami to NYC

By Zack Stieber

A 23-year-old skated from Florida to New York.

Yanise Ho left her apartment in Miami three months ago and arrived in New York City on June 12. She plans on rollerblading all the way to Los Angeles.

Ho, who nicknamed herself “The Bladress,” relies on the kindness of strangers, carrying no money, and adhering to a rule not to ask anyone for anything.

So far, she has not spent one night on the streets or hungry.

“I really want to show that there’s a lot of love and kindness in the world,” she told Fox 5.

Ho is raising money to help young women finish their schooling in Kenya and Uganda and has raised over $10,000 so far.
