History Behind OKCRD & Charitable Events
Believing in giving back the community, Oklahoma City Roller Derby (OKCRD) graciously coordinates fundraisers at each home bout to benefit local non-profit organizations. For our 2013 season opener, we have chosen to support the many men and women in law enforcement who selflessly serve our cities, counties, and state through the Oklahoma Officer Down Foundation.
We believe in the mission of the Oklahoma Officer Down Foundation and understand the importance of the services they provide to officers and their families when the unthinkable happens. The Foundation, comprised of volunteer law enforcement personnel, focuses on assisting officers who are severely injured or killed in the line of duty with financial assistance to relieve some of the financial burdens and hardships that both the officer and their families face.
Last year, we helped raise over $3000 for OODF and we want to DOUBLE that in our 2nd annual public safety appreciation night! This is where YOU come in! Help us raise money for this worthwhile cause and show your support for the often under appreciated, always overworked local heroes!
If you cannot contribute financially, we hope that you will come to the event and stand up for those who have dedicated their lives to the service of others! Check our website for details on how to attend: www.okcrd.com
