Munoz, now 67, has collected every admission tag and has recorded 7,500 miles there.

Munoz said he started skating as a way to stay in shape for his son, who has cerebral palsy. He ended up falling in love with the sport.

"It feels like you have total freedom when you're out there," he said. "It's the smoothness, it's the winter time activity."

Munoz said next year he plans to do more with the hobby by fundraising to help people with developmental disabilities.
