San Diego Roller Derby is a family affair. By this we mean that it is something the whole family can watch, participate in and enjoy. What is also meant is that we, as a team, are a family and when one of our own is hurting and in need we share in her pain and will be there to support her. On January 4th, one of ours lost one of hers. (Read Thomas Alan Arnold’s obituary here.) Molly RinkMauled and her family is playing short a key teammate and, though there are no replacements, there are many supporting staff that can help in some small way.
Every bout we volunteer our time and collect money for a cause that is near and dear to the hearts of members of SDRD. This month we assisted a fellow skater during the memorial service for her husband and we will be having a raffle at our bout where in 50% of the proceeds will go to help her family. We ask for your assistance, for Molly Rink Mauled as her family begins to rebuild from the loss of a father, husband, coach, and friend. Donations may also be made to Thomas Arnold Memorial Fund, San Diego County Credit Union, 6545 Sequence Dr., San Diego 92121. Donations may be dropped off at any San Diego County Credit Union.
