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.
We so appreciate all of the AFA supporters that donated to our league and scholarship fund. A total of $2,406 was raised. AMAZING!
A shout out to our top fundraiser, Sparks! Sparks will enjoy 3 months of AFA dues being waived as thanks for her hard work in raising funds.
AFA stickers will go to the following skaters as thanks for raising $50 or more: Kristina Bouchard, Raven Havoc, Mother Cutter, Killa Gram, and Shred Astaire.
An AFA sticker and tee-shirt will be awarded to the following skaters for raising $100 or more: Rose Quirks, Helen Skaytes, Etch-Ah-Sketch, Ginger Snap-Her, Tiffany Theriault, Doom ’N Bloom, Daisy Cutter, Wild Violet, Chrissy, Van HoOTs, Goffda Track, and Smashing Punk’n.
Luna Roughgood and Sparks both raised over $250 and will receive an AFA Sticker, t-shirt, and pullover hoodie as our thanks.
Our Boutfit Costume Contest winners were as follows:

A very special thank you to Bomber for coming up with the idea and enthusiasm for the Skate-a-thon and to Astaire for her hard work behind the scenes as well as the Fundraising Committee for their time and efforts.
I can’t wait for next year’s Skate-a-thon!
