Boston Roller Derby (BRD) needs your help! Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, we had to cancel two of our bouts so far, and don’t know when we’ll be back on the track in front of our loyal fans. We rely on the dedicated fans who attend these events to ensure that we are able to continue to operate.
Our monthly bouts are our main source of revenue beyond monthly dues paid by our skaters. As a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is volunteer skater-run and owned we rely on our public events and merchandise sales to bring in the majority of our annual revenue. We rent a warehouse space for practice that we share with junior’s and men’s league partners. If we are unable to afford our rent, all three leagues will need to find alternate practice space.
We’re asking for your help to keep the lights on while we anxiously wait to put our skates back on the track. We hope you’ll come check us out when we do get to host public events again!
