Four of the Chattanooga Roller Girls were seen rolling down the hallways of Children’s Hospital at Erlanger while visiting several young patients along the way.
A few weeks before their visit, five of the 25 team members participated in Jack’s Chattanoggins’s event and shaved their heads to raise money in support of Children’s Hospital. The team, score keepers and referees all pitched in to help the girls raise over $4,100. It was during that time some of team members decided they wanted to visit the children and see what difference their fundraising efforts make to the patients who are treated at the hospital.
As mothers and young women who are also huge kids at heart, they rolled right in and played games with the patients, participated in a race with a patient on a scooter and signed posters for patients who were recovering in bed.
