FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — Fayetteville’s Rogue Roller Girls took on the Charlotte All Stars in roller derby.
Saturday was a double-header match and like all of their home games they donated a portion of the proceeds to charity.
For Saturday night’s match they donated to the Cumberland County Animal Shelter.
One of Fayetteville’s team members is deaf and the team has a special way to communicate with her.
In fact, they told fans to cheer for her by making “spirit fingers.”
“All of our games are important because it’s a chance for us to grow as a league in the Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby Association as well as supporting local charity,” said Erin “Whiskers” Murphy, a Rouge Roller Girl.
“Every bout that we have supports a local charity and we donate a portion of the proceeds to that charity,” she added.
Their next event is a match against the Cape Fear All Stars July 9.
