It gives us great pleasure to announce the Philly Roller Girls' 2014 charity partner: Philly Girls in Motion!
Philly Girls in Motion is a volunteer driven organization that encourages and motivates girls and their families to participate in fitness activities and learn about healthy nutrition. This local organization works in communities to start running/jogging clubs, provide group exercise classes, and deliver messages about healthy choices in Recreation Centers and schools in and around Philadelphia. Together, PRG and Philly Girls In Motion hope to continue promoting health and wellness for women in the Philadelphia region.

Philly Roller Girls attended the last two skating sessions held at Class of 1923 Arena on Saturday, March 15 and Sunday, March 16. The girls took to the ice with the same enthusiasm they bring to every game and spent time interacting with skaters both young and old. PRG volunteers served up cups of hot chocolate – with marshmallows! – to warm the chilled ice skaters while telling tales of PRG’s growth in Philadelphia since its inception in 2005. Within the next few weeks, PRG members will replace the ice rink with a derby track and get to work for the 2014 season. Join us for the first double-header of 2014 at Class of 1923 Arena on Saturday, April 12 at 5:00PM. We look forward to seeing you there!
PRG volunteers staffed the 3rd Annual Philly Bierfest on Saturday, February 22, 2014. This celebration of the Philadelphia region’s German immigration and brewing heritage sells out each year, and this year was no exception! 650 attendees enjoyed samples of German food as well as a broad spectrum of beers from local breweries. PRG staffers engaged the crowd in arm wrestling contests and a stein-holding masskrugstemmen contest. As in years past, great care was taken to ensure all attendees had the chance to learn about, and be proud of, Philadelphia’s heritage. PRG are honored to be involved with this event each year and continue our mission of supporting groups within the community. Prost!
