The home season has finally come to an end as the Fort Myers Derby Girls will host their 7th and final home bout of the 2013 season on Saturday, October 12th at Bamboozles Skating Center, 2095 Andrea Lane in Fort Myers. The Fort Myers Derby Girl's Palm City Punishers will battle against Tallahassee's Capital Punishment in their first ever WFTDA (Women's Flat Track Derby Association) sanctioned bout at home. Doors open at 6pm the bout starts at 6:30pm. Whether you're a veteran or a first-timer attending a derby bout, this game promises to be history in the making. So, come cheer the girls on as they fight to claim rank and put Ft. Myers on the WFTDA's international map of roller derby rankings!
The Fort Myers Derby Girls are proud to work with the Lisabet Anna Buesing Angel Support for this bout's featured charity. Lisabet was diagnosed with stage IIIB breast cancer in 2005 at the age of 23. She was a single mother of a then 3 year old boy. Even though Lisa fought for her life with a double radical mastectomy and three years of battles, Lisa was taken by the cancer when it metastasized into her brain and lungs. Lisa lost her life to cancer on November 1st, 2008. During her life, Lisa became involved in many cancer foundations and was in a national ad for the Sun Program. Because she received so much help through donations, she started a foundation in her own name to show her son the importance of paying it forward to others who need help. Her family and friends are continuing her work with the Lisabet Anna Buesing Angel Support to help give other young, single mothers with breast cancer financial aid. The Fort Myers Derby Girls will be running a raffle and have breast casts up for auction to help raise money for the organization at the bout on the 12th.
