It is only her first year volunteering, but Danny Martines has quickly learned the ins and outs of what it means to be a B.A.D. Volunteer. Sometimes it takes a while for volunteers to learn the ropes, but for Martine roller derby was love at first sight. We are so grateful that she has jumped in with both feet and gives her all to NSOing, helping load and unload our truck and is amazing in times of need. Thank you Danny for loving derby as much as we do!
