Glass shatters easily and so does a 10 year olds hopes of skating in her first Allstar Roller Derby Bout. Last night two windows of my car were smashed out and the most valuable items removed were bags filled with our roller skating gear. Our skates, pads, helmets, repair tools, ect. are now gone. Skating together has been a treasured bonding experience for us for the last two years. My daughter, Ruby, has a natural love for the sport and has been working so hard to prepare for her upcoming Roller Derby Bout on Sunday February 1st. And unless we find an outpour of support Ruby will be unable to skate with her team, the Rose City Rollers Rose Petals. We are hoping to reach those of you who would be able to help us replace our equipment. We would be incredibly grateful if we could raise enough funds to have Ruby's equipment replaced for her to compete with her team on Feb. 1st. 

We are trying to replace all of our equipment and appreciate any amount you would be able to give. 

Thank you for taking the time to read our story. 

We are happy to accept any loaner equipment as well.
