Fundraiser Highlight: Help Santa Cruz (Financially Recover From Their) Travel to Playoffs

Thanks to you we have been able to represent Santa Cruz on the international roller derby stage. The support of super fans like you have made it possible for the Santa Cruz Derby Girls to be one of the best teams in the world, ranking #14 out of 350 teams worldwide. Santa Cruz stands apart from our top competitors who represent major cities--we’re a small town in the big leagues!

We are so excited to have climbed the rankings this season and punch our ticket to the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) playoffs September 6-8 in North Carolina. Our next challenge is getting our team to the east coast to compete for a chance to make it to the WFTDA Championships for the first time ever. We can’t do this without you—-we need your help to get there! A gift of:

Wendy Walden
