Skating to 300 miles: Roller derby team creates virtual challenge for members, Big Island community

The Echo City Knockouts roller derby team roll their way down the street at the Kailua-Kona Community Christmas Parade in 2018. The Knockouts' Miki Hajek has created a virtual challenge for the team and community members to skate — or run, bike, etc. — the 300 miles around the Big Island.
