Super Busy In May
May has become a very busy month for the ladies of Gem City Rollergirls. We are not only hosting a Military Appreciation bout (where proceeds of our 50/50 raffle will go to benefit the Dayton VA) but we are participating, running and/or supporting three marathons! That's right, three. We talked and debated but we couldn't decided which one to do, so we decided to do all of them. Come out in the month of May and support one of these amazing organizations. If you are not able to come out, please follow the links on the side of the page and help donate to the causes. Any little bit helps.
