Friends, Alumni, and Supporters of Roller Derby--

The Twin City Derby Girls have searched for a local space to call our own since day one. Desiring more than limited rental hours at the local rink, our league has combed the Chambana area for a suitable, yet affordable, space to skate. We've made countless inquiries, explanations, and negotiations to best fulfill our mission:

To promote roller derby in the Champaign-Urbana (IL) community by fostering athleticism, empowerment. and sportsmanship among all of our members and supporters, especially women and girls, while benefiting local non-profit organizations through our charitable donations and service.

And FINALLY, a space has been found! In the heart of Champaign, even. But there's one catch:

We have to fill an Olympic-sized pool.

That's right. We need to build a structure within a former pool that will safely support a floor. Then install a floor over this structure for our track. The cost of materials alone for this project is an estimated $20,000. 

Wait! Did we lose you?! We have a plan--an architect's plans, in fact. We have a signed lease! And city-approved building permits. And some lumber. We can do this!

But we need your help.

We have an amazing opportunity to repurpose a facility that has begged for reinvention. It'll be a unique indoor venue for sports and entertainment in our micro-urban community. 

Please join us. Let's build this.

To make this a reality, we need your support. Every dollar counts! All donors will receive a special thank-you on our Facebook page and website. Donations of $50+ will receive two complimentary tickets to our home-opener bout on March 5, 2016. Donations of $100+ will receive four bout tickets + a TCDG t-shirt. Donations of $300+ will receive four bout tickets + a TCDG t-shirt + their name engraved on a dedication plaque. This goes without mention, but donors also get our eternal gratefulness!

Check our Facebook page and website for photo updates on construction, move-in, and upcoming events. Drop us an email if you'd prefer to donate directly to this TCDG project, just not via this site. 

Thank you for reading, for your support and consideration!!

Twin City Derby Girls is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Donors will be mailed receipts, as donations may be tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
