This October Kelican Bae, PR Director for Derby United, asked 31 different skaters what connected them to roller skating. There is no better way to express one’s love for the activity than during a nationally recognized month honoring the sport. She received such a range of responses across the DU membership, that each and every one had a dedicated daily post. From park skates to beach roll outs, jam skating to roller derby, there were so many reasons these folks want to be on 8 wheels.
Many people look at skating as a way to fly, to defy fears and to teach others what is like to fall and get back up. The most common was simply because roller skating is FUN!
