Who is the Detroit Skaters On The Go?
Well, let’s stroll down Memory Lane!!!!!!!

Lorna (Cookie), Theresa (Tee), Quintone (Tone), Tiffany and Cynthia

In 1993 a group of skaters collaborated on what was needed to breathe new life and add new interests of roller skating. This group consisted of Debra Bosman, Marshall Carter, Lorna Hubbard, Brenda Mallett and Cynthia Travis. Together, they formed Skaters On The Move. Under this name, they organized an adventurous and successful trip to Chicago, Illinois.

In 1995 Charles Haywood and Andre Mitchell came together to orchestrate a trip of skating bliss to Atlanta, Georgia. All who participated had a splendid time and there were regrets from those who didn’t attend.

In 1996 Detroit Skaters On The Go evolved and since have sponsored and traveled to New Jersey/New York, Atlanta, Chicago, St. Louis, and California.

Who is the Detroit Skaters On The Go? Lorna Hubbard, Theresa Jones, Andre Mitchell, Cynthia Travis, Fred and La Cheryl Wicker. What was so special about this group? We have in common a love for skating and meeting people. We encourage and support clean, safe, healthy, courteous and legal fun! Participants of sponsored activities of Detroit Skaters On The Go include persons from all walks of life, both professional and nonprofessional, technical, blue-collar, retired, etc. Position/status has no bearing on an invitation to participate. All that is asked is that you share the same love for skating.
