Want to watch the Paradise Roller Girls push their physical endurance to the limit? Then make a pledge for the Sept. 9 Paradise Roller Girls’ Skate-A-Thon taking place 9 a.m. to noon at the Wainaku Community Gym.
The Big Island’s very own derby girls will sweat their butts off by skating as many derby-track size laps as they can in three hours. Skaters will raise money through flat pledges or by pledge-per-lap. Skaters who receive per-lap pledges will earn the pledge amount multiplied by the amount of laps the sponsored skater completes. Money earned from the event will help pay PRG team travel costs for the Sept. 29-30 Oahu Battle of the Islands roller derby tournament.
Make a flat pledge or donation, or pick and choose the skaters you want to sponsor. Pledging a dollar amount per-lap is the best way to watch these girls move out and sweat. The more you pledge, the harder they will work! Donations and pledge money can be paid by cash, check, money order, or with credit card via PayPal.
To find a skater or make pledges and donations contact DERButante Diva at (808) 938-6007 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Paradise Roller Girls is a women’s flat-track roller derby league based on the Big Island of Hawaii. PRG’s mission is to promote a healthy, athletic lifestyle in their community through the alternative sport of roller derby.
