Dear AFA League-mates,

A huge thank you to all of you that participated in our Skate-a-thon on March 3rd. I know it is not easy to ask your family, friends and strangers for donations and we appreciate that you all stepped out of your comfort zone for such a good cause. 

The Skate-a-thon benefited the League and our scholarship fund which helps skaters in need come up with some of the start up costs for derby.
