The skatin' ladies of the Treasure Valley Roller Girls will take on the Wasatch Midnight Terror and the Walla Walla Sweets in a double-header dubbed the Toe Stop Stomp. Ana Rampage, Callous Alice and the rest of the gals will be there to whip and jam their way to victory.
Roller derby has crashed into American pop-culture with speed usually reserved for the best jammers. The derby we know today has roots as far back as the early 20th century. A boom-and-bust cycle of derby revivals throughout the 20th century has led us to today's hard-hitting, face-bashing, knuckle-crunching derby--a far more entertaining sibling to the round-the-track stamina tests of yesteryear.
A portion of the proceeds from the double header will go to the Huntington's Disease Society of America, a national nonprofit health organization "dedicated to improving the lives of people with Huntington's Disease and their families." Huntington's Disease is a detrimental, hereditary, degenerative brain disorder for which there is, at present, no cure.
