Community Contributions
Giving back to our community is important to us. We think Billings is the best place around, and we are going to do our part to help keep it that way!  Over the course of our first three seasons BRDD has raised over $26,000 for local charities, and volunteered countless hours. Here are a few of the events that we have been a part of this year...
2012
 
 

The 2012 season found Billings Roller Derby Dames donating and raising money for local charities including: Animal Ed.ventures, Special Olympics, Salvation Army/Road Dog Toy Run, and the Center for Children and Families. We continue our commitment to assisting local nonprofits and plan on exciting partnerships in the new year!


 
2013

 

Our February bout found us partnering with Big Sky Honor Flight, an amazing charity whose mission is to recognize American Veterans for their sacrifices and achievements by flying them to Washington, D.C., to see their memorial at no cost. BRDD was able to help raise $2,700 for this wonderful organization.


Our April bout partner was the Friendship House, an amazing charity whose mission is to foster renewal, stability, and transformation in the lives of youth and families of South Billings . BRDD was able to help raise $1,725 for this great organization!


In June our community partner was Eagle Mount Billings, an amazing nonprofit whose mission is to provide opportunities in recreation to enhance the lives of children and adults with disabilities. BRDD was able to help raise $1,000 for this great organization!


September found the Dames partnering with the Center for Children and Families again, helping to create a bed for their annual Dream Bed fundraiser. 

Our fourth home bout of the season ended with BRDD raising $1,000 for Forever Families, a local charity that provides supportive services to foster and adoptive families.

November is always dedicated to families in need during the Holiday season. With a matching donation from Bighorn Inspection, Inc, BRDD was able to raise $3,000 to purchase toys for the Road Dog Toy Run, benefitting the Salvation Army. 

The Polar Bare Plunge for Special Olympics has been an annual tradition since the inception of our league. This year the temperature was -31 below zero....a truly chilly, but heartwarming, experience!
