Special to the Record

It’s finally time and the Rink Minx are raring to Fight Like A Girl!

On April 20 The Rink Minx will be taking on Nanaimo’s Harbour City Rollers. This promises to be an epic showdown as both teams have been training all winter for this and are ready to skate hard and hit hard.

This bout is being dedicated to one of the Minx’s own skaters, Goody2Shoes (Marnie), who has recently been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.  We are raising funds to help create some memories for Marnie’s daughter and tick a few items off her bucket list.

At halftime Velvet Underground Hair Group will be in attendance cutting and buzzing hair for the cause. If you would like to donate you can do so at account #749530-Marnies account- at Coastal Community Credit Union, or by e-mail transfer to goodytwoshoes4@yahoo.com.

Doors open Saturday at 6:30 p.m. and the whistle blows at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are at the door for $10 and kids under 10 years are free. See you at Comox Valley Sports Centre (Arena 1) on Vanier Drive, Courtenay and help us Fight Like  A Girl against Cancer.

Contact the Minx at rinkminxrollergirls@hotmail.com, on Facebook, and on Twitter @RinkMinx for any enquiries.
