Encourage Health Series Donation $1000 to Savannah Derby Devils
The Savannah Derby Devils is a women’s flat-track roller derby league founded on the principle that the concept of being healthy extends beyond weight and size to emotional and mental health. Derby Devils encourage all women to build their self-confidence and broaden their comfort zone through a culture of team-oriented athleticism and sisterhood.
The Derby Devils also support other community nonprofits through partnerships and volunteering. They will use the $1,000 grant to advance these efforts and to continue funding their skating facilities.
“We laugh together; we cry together. We help pick each other up and offer support,” says the Derby Devils’ head coach Patty Leon. “We are so honored to have been chosen for this grant and to have this opportunity to spread the word about our mission.”
This marks the fifth year for the Enmarket Encourage Health Education Series, conducted in partnership with Healthy Savannah, Sandfly Family Dental, Gulfstream Aerospace Corp., Clover Health, Hoist Water, Savannah Morning News and Savannah Magazine.
