The skaters of Casper’s Deadly Ghosts are excited to bring the sports mix of athleticism and female empowerment to the Casper area. Roller derby is an alternative sport for which the members train intensively, and actually pay to play. Members include nurses, teachers, medical professionals, other professionals and home makers. Casper’s Deadly Ghost’s coach explains it the following way, “This sport really promotes athleticism, health, endurance, and camaraderie between our derby families. On top of spending hours bettering ourselves as players we do so much for our community. We have our own small derby community that has a great support network but we would like to see the larger Casper and Wyoming community get involved and get excited about all we do. We give back and raise money for so many others. It is an important part of who we are. My hope is to see Casper come out on the 18th and not only watch this amazing and growing sport but to also support Joshua's Storehouse.”
Proceeds from the bout on October 18th will benefit Joshua's Storehouse. Joshua's is a non profit community service organization dedicated to providing food at no cost to low-income local families and individuals in need of short-term hunger relief. Their services and success is dependent on donations to continue. There will also be an area to donate non perishable food items at the door.
