These loved ones are the reasons why San Diego Roller Derby (SDRD) has decided to join forces as a team in the Relay for Life event in San Diego this month. Our ladies will be working hard to raise money for cancer research by seeking donations or recruiting friends and family to participate in the relay alongside us as we Fight the Bout Against Cancer. We will lace up our skates at 9am on Saturday August 21st and roll on down to the Embarcadero for the Relay for Life event-derby style!

SDRD’ s Fight the Bout Against Cancer doesn’t stop at the Relay for Life event! We are taking it one step further and chopping off our hair during our August 21st bout against the Mission City Brawlin’ Betties! SDRD’s own Lady Diesel, along with Ortega Chile and HR ruf n stuf will be letting Split Endz and Mr. Split Endz cut off their pony tails to donate to Locks of Love. Anyone willing to donate their hair at halftime will be given a free gift certificate for a designer salon cut and style so you don’t have to go around wearing a hat!

Fighting cancer is a team effort. By joining or donating to our team, you will be a part of a life-changing event that gives everyone in the community a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that takes too much.

Please make a donation, or join our team and help us Fight the Bout Against Cancer!
