More about theCW2 Joshua M. Tillery Memorial Fund (taken off of the website):

The CW2 Joshua M. Tillery Memorial Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works in partnership with the local community to help “bridge the gap” between what our veterans, active duty members, and their families need and what is actually provided. These young men and women and their families face the challenges of multiple deployments, mounting unemployment, and increasing medical and psychosocial needs.

 Your donation will help in the following ways:

  • Providing free lodging for families to be close to wounded
    loved ones.
  • Aiding wounded or disabled veterans while they wait for benefit payments to begin.
  • Helping provide for educational and job reintegration.
  • Assisting financially needy young military families
    during deployments.

The premier bout was held in March of 2007 and they have played teams all over the west in the years since. The Treasure Valley Rollergirls are a proud member of the Womens Flat Track Derby Association, and are thrilled to be bouting in downtown Boise at Century Link Arena representing Idaho Roller Derby.
