hell on wheels

The tough-as-nails ladies of the Jacksonville Roller Girls are right in the middle of their 2009 season and are doing an amazing job of repping Duval with each bout. Not familiar with these dangerous dames? The JRGs have been skating their hearts out for our fair city since 2003 and each full-contact matchup is non-stop entertainment. In addition to the blood, sweat and fishnets they bring to the rink, the Girls also do their part to give back. Over the years the JRGs have participated in fundraisers for Toys for Tots, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Henderson Haven Inc. for autism, the Florida Georgia Blood Alliance, the Hepatoblastoma Foundation and the Humane Society.
The Jacksonville Roller Girls have two home bouts in August and need your support. On August 9th they’ll take on the Gainesville Roller Rebels at Skate Station in Mandarin. In addition to this grudge match, local band name:bran will perform during intermission. Then, head over to Edge 17 for an after party and fundraiser with music by Tuffy and Shiragirl. Our Girls have a double header scheduled for August 29th. The Duval Derby Dames will take on the River City rat Pack. Then the New Jax City Rollers will face off against Central Florida’s Molly Rodgers. This is one night of roller derby you do not want to miss.
