For the second consecutive year, the Charlotte Roller Girls will show its support for the Regional AIDS Interfaith Network (RAIN) by participating in AIDS Walk Charlotte. On Saturday, May 2, members of the team, many on roller skates, will lead a group of more than 3,000 caring individuals on the two-mile walk. This event raises funds for RAIN’s programs and services which are available to Charlotte community.
“Our organization strives to make a positive impact on the community and we are proud to support RAIN,” said Jaclyn Green a.k.a ‘Jack the Maniac’ of the Charlotte Roller Girls. “It’s an honor for us to lead the way and hope our participation will encourage others to join us in supporting this important cause.”
