On January, 31st (8PM), all of Eve’il X‘s derby gear, skater for the One Love Roller Dolls was stolen in Ghent (Belgium)! We called out to the whole derby community & raised €352,5, to benefit Eve’il X’s cause.
Last week, as it turns out, Eve’il X’s gear was found by the police! This means she won’t have to buy new gear after all & we no longer need all of your generous donation. For those who donated: we’ll refund your donation through our PayPal-account, so you’ll have your money back in no time.
Still, we won’t forget the amount of support we/she got from the derby community and can’t thank you enough for everything!
All’s Well That Ends Well!
We’d like to thank everyone who cared, shared & gave a little! It’s so heartwarming to see the derbycommunity work together for a good cause. We’ve got reactions from allover Europe!
Belgium, The Netherlands, Tenerife & a special shout-out to the UK-leagues who supported as well! Thanks to Rollin’ News for sharing our message across in the UK!
Special thanks to SckrPnch, our favourite derby owned & operated webshop, who donated a new set of wheels & to Rollerschool Brasschaat for their general support. Check our their show “Umbrya“, a roller skating production!
All together, we raised €352,5, to benefit Eve’il X’s cause. We’ll keep you posted on what she’s done with the money, but we’re sure she’ll be choosing skates & gear in no time!
More to come!
It was a grey backpack ‘Chrismo’, with her helmet attached to it. Inside she put her Riedell ‘She Devil’ roller skates, with red ‘Radar Tuner’ wheels (92A) & black/white striped laces. She had ‘Pro Design.Inc’ knee pads, wrist guards, and ‘Bauer’ elbow pads & ‘Rucanor’ volleybalpads. Exact location: Sint-Annaplein, near the ‘Studioscoop’ in Ghent.

We’re also gathering money, so she can buy herself new gear. She’s one of those hard working skaters, who never backs down. She’s a student and saved up a long time for her beloved derby gear. Eve’il X has put a lot of effort in her roller derby carreer & into our league & we feel this is the (unfortunate) occasion to give back. She’s one of our star jammers, & we want her to be fully ready for our next game, so let’s get things going! Roughly counted, she lost around about €650 worth of gear, so every little cent counts!
- black Riedell ‘She Devil’ roller skates (new: €350)
- red Radar Tuner wheels (92A) (new: €59,95)
- knee pads & wrist guards ‘Pro Designed’ (new: €147)
- elbow pads ‘bauer’ (new: €20)
- black helmet ‘scott’ (new: €45)
- Volleybalpads ‘Rucanor’ (new: €8)
total value (new): around €650
The OLRD was already contemplating a fundraiser within the league, but we decided to broaden the reach to the whole roller derby community. If you have anything to spare, help her out. Any amount is welcome!
