I never would have imagined working during a pandemic so shortly into the start of my career but I feel grateful to have the opportunity to do the job that I wanted to do at a critical time like this. Be assured that we are working our hardest to be a prepared and safe place of recovery for our community members." — with Antonia Herchik. - HUMBOLDT ROLLER DERBY

While Humboldt Roller Derby league members may not be able to strut their stuff at the rink right now, they are still out in the community providing essential services in style.

Over the last few weeks, HRD has been highlighting their commitment. So, here is a shout-out to those league members for showing us how it is done, and to all of you out there continuing to help Humboldt County through these COVID-19 times.
