Bradentucky Bombers Roller Derby League Walking to Raise HIV and AIDS Awareness

Local Roller Derby Girls Supporting 4th Annual Sarasota/Manatee AIDS Walk

Bradentucky, Fla. (November 09, 2009) – Members of the Bradentucky Bombers Roller Derby League will join other Southwest Florida residents to raise money to fund local HIV and AIDS awareness efforts and support programs during the 4th Annual Sarasota/Manatee AIDS Walk benefiting Trinity Charities on Saturday, Nov. 14, 2009. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates about 1.1 million Americans are living with HIV or AIDS. Locally, Trinity Charities offers various support programs for those infected and affected by the virus.

Roller derby fans are encouraged to register and join the Bradentucky Bombers for the two mile walk at the New College campus in Sarasota. Registration is between 8 and 9 a.m. at the Sudakoff Center (5845 General Dougher Place, Sarasota) with the walk following. Food, raffles, music and prizes are included in the morning activities. The walk is co-chaired jointly by Trinity Charities and New College. Online registrations are being accepted at

For those unable to walk they can support a walker or a registered team. All they need to do is select “Support a Walker” from the walk registration section of and choose whether to support an individual walker, a team, or the walk.

About the Bradentucky Bombers
The Bradentucky Bombers is an all-female, full-contact, flat-track roller derby league representing Bradenton, Sarasota, and Venice and pride themselves as strong women rolling for a strong community.

The league is the Las Vegas "love-child" of founder Gigi RaMoan. Conceived in the bathroom of the Double Down Saloon as Gigi admired the "Sin-City Rollers" graffiti on the wall, the league was quite rightfully named "The Bradentucky Bombers" by her husband, Doug, mere minutes after its conception. That was a few years ago — 2006, to be exact. Today, The Bradentucky Bombers are 40+ skaters strong, currently consisting of two teams: The All-Stars (our "A-team") and The Nuclear Bombshells.

They range in age from 18 to 40+. By day, they are working wives, mothers, students, teachers, motorcycle mechanics, administrative assistants, bartenders, web designers, artists, and everything in between. But a few nights a week, just like Cat Woman, alter-egos emerge as they pull up fishnet stockings, strap on skates and transform into Bomber Girls, with names like Busty Bruiser, Mission Mary Position, Vixen Da CrusHer, Snow Wipe U Out, Mia Psycho, Julia Seize-Her, Yakuzza Girl and Signal 20, to name just a few.
