Roller derby team gives back to community

Posted: Updated:

The wheels were turning at Skateland roller rink Thursday evening.

Members of the Jewel City Rollergirls roller derby team hosted a free Christmas party for the community.

They said they use the rink for practice and have had such a great outpouring of support from the local community, they wanted to spread some Christmas cheer.

The team not only paid for the rental of the rink, but also helped out with skate rental fees and gave away prizes.

Hundreds of children and their families joined in the fun.

They also enjoyed free doughnuts and milk and got the chance to sit on Santa's lap and hang out with Spiderman.

Organizers say it was a great success.
