MVP of the Week: Girls on Track

I am a big fan of Girls on Track and their mission “to foster important life skills in girls, through participation in roller derby as skaters and decision makers.” I mean, who wouldn’t be?

They just launched their first round of funding for organizations and programs:

  • Programs or special events with a specific focus on awareness of and access to roller derby for teen girls.

  • Equipment for roller derby that would be available on a long-term basis to allow access to roller derby for teen girls.

  • You can apply from anywhere in the world. We give grants to organizations everywhere in the derby world!

Fundraiser Highlight: Double Excel

This guy BROKE HIS LEG DURING THE MRDA CHAMPS GAME! Which is kind of a nightmare! The gofundme already hit their goal but y’all know medical bills can be huge and being out of work for long enough to heal can be devastating so if you can, help him out!
