Roller derby hits the nail on the head

Posted on: Aug 15, 2013

While most people were just getting out of bed last Saturday, two of your local roller derby leagues were already up and hard at work.

More than twenty skaters from both Carolina and Collision Men’s Derby traded in their skates for sledgehammers to lend a hand to Habitat for Humanity of Durham.

Armed with hard hats, tools and ladders we descended on a home in Durham ready to do some demolition! Our roller derby wrecking crew tore down siding,  busted up beams and hauled bricks in the name of restoring the house for it’s new deserving Habitat homeowner.

We were missing the indian, police officer, and biker, but we couldn't resist!

After a few hours of putting in some serious sweat equity , we had the house torn down and ready for reconstruction.

Though it was hot and the labor was intense, skaters left with smiles on their dirty faces not just because we got to break stuff, but because we played a part in giving back to the community that supports us.
