Floor it!

Flying over a rickety floor is no fun. And roller derby is dangerous enough without having to worry about the track reaching up and biting you. Rose City needs your help to get a new track for the 2011 season. Your contribution will keep the action and our skaters on the track and out of the sick bay.

Our goal is $15,000.00. We can do it--with just a little help from all of our fans.

When you contribute $20 to the Rose City Rollers Floor it! campaign, you will get your own personalized tile. Other giving opportunities are available as well. Contribute today by clicking here. For more information, check back on our website.
