Lehigh Valley Roller Girls battle breast cancer

Rolling to fight breast cancer

SCHNECKSVILLE, Pa. - Some local roller derby girls are going to battle it out this weekend to fight a deadly disease. The Lehigh Valley Roller Girls have a bout, or game, Saturday night.

They'll be donating money from a huge raffle to a local woman, Michelle Tsihlis and her husband, who are walking in the Susan G Komen For the Cure Three Day walk in October.

Mary Weeks, one of the Lehigh Valley RollerGirls, said, "Anybody who goes through cancer, male or female, they're tough. To have to go through something like that, and suffer any kind of a loss, whatever it may be, we want to give them our support. We're tough strong independent women and we want to support them any way we can."

The bout is Friday night at the Independence Family Fun Center in Schnecksville, Lehigh Co.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door. Raffle tickets are 6 for $5. Prizes include gift certificates, wine baskets, and more!
