The Story behind the Strong Athletic Veteran Design
Lisa Benson, aka Debella Deball, a veteran of the US Military and a retired member of the Texas Rollergirls, asked Strong Athletic to create the Strong Athletic Veteran shirt for roller derby athletes who are part of the Battle Buddies group. It was decided that 22% of profits from the shirt should be donated to Mission 22.
From Mission 22, "Mission 22 is a non-profit who combats the ever-rising veteran suicide rate. Every day, more than twenty veterans are lost to suicide. Mission 22 wants to bring that number to zero."
Battle Buddies is a Roller Derby organization that was created to provide support, information, and a continued sense of military community to our Roller Derby veterans and those currently serving in the military. To find their facebook page, click here.
There are many USA Veterans, Active Duty and Reserves who play roller derby. Strong Athletic was honored to make this shirt and is very proud to partner with Battle Buddies to help raise funds for Mission 22. To find out more about Mission 22, click here.
