On behalf of the OKC Metro area derby leagues…

The Oklahoma Victory Dolls, Oklahoma City Roller Derby, the OKC Outlaws, and the OKC Wolf Pack, we thank you for the concerned messages and kind words following the violent tornadoes that have impacted our state this week. Our neighbors have been hit hard and there is devastation that affects us all.

For the first time, all four area derby leagues are banding together for a common cause. We are reaching out to our derby community, friends, and family for help. In an effort to assist those affected by the recent tragedies in our area, we have started a fundraising campaign through Crowd Rise to benefit Feeding America.

Please consider contributing to our cause. The funds we raise will be used for delivery truckloads of food, water, and supplies to impacted areas through Feeding America’s more than 200 food banks and 61,000 agencies. The organization’s food banks will also set up additional drop off sites.

The website for our fundraising efforts is:

Thank you, in advance, for your contribution to our cause. Every little bit helps.

In addition to the fundraiser we have set up, the OKC Metro derby leagues will be organizing teams to volunteer in the hardest hit areas toward disaster cleanup efforts. We are also suggesting a few drop off points if you wish to contribute supplies or make monetary donations in Oklahoma. Switchblade Skate Company, located at 2132 I-240 Service Rd. in Oklahoma City will be accepting these donations. Please call 405-605-0876 for hours of operation and a list of requested items. The OKC Outlaws are also accepting donations – both at their practices, as well as at Wayne’s Salon, located at 501 S Mustang Rd., Suite G, in Yukon. Please contact them via Facebook for practice times and a list of requested items.
