After much discussion, the Keweenaw Roller Girls have decided to cancel our scheduled roller derby bout on June 30. Many of our skaters and regular volunteers are currently pouring their energy into the clean-up and relief process, and we in no way want to distract from that. Our regular venue is currently a hub for supplies and volunteers; while there are other locations across the area where we could potentially move, to do so in such a short time would cause undue stress to league members and community partners whose attention is elsewhere.
Our featured organization for this bout was going to be Dial Help, Inc.; we will be donating money to them and encourage you to do the same if you are able. The health services they provide in times of sorrow, stress, and rebuilding are invaluable.
In lieu of the bout on June 30, we are planning to work with local organizations to facilitate a mass KRG volunteer day. Please stay tuned for details!
If you have any questions or concerns at all, please don’t hesitate to send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org or via Facebook.
