Windy City Rollers at the Walk & Roll

Last Saturday, some of the Windy City Rollers, along with skaters from Derby Lite, the DuPage Derby Dames, Chicago Red Hots, and others participated in the American Cancer Society Walk & Roll. The annual Walk & Roll event brings together thousands of people for a 5K walk, 10K skate, or 15K bike ride. Beginning in Chicago in 1971, the Walk & Roll raises funds to support the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving work in research, education, advocacy, and patient services.

The Windy City Rollers nearly doubled this year’s goal of $1,000 by raising $1,870, with our Oval Team staff member Joe Klug leading the league with $270 raised. Even more impressive, Derby Lite and Friends have raised a total of $200,000 in the past nine years toward the fight against cancer.

Thanks to all of our generous donors. There’s still time to donate if you haven’t yet had a chance. We encourage you to make a tax-deductible donation to the WCR team to help us further exceed our fundraising goal. For information on partnering with the Windy City Rollers, email us at!
