Unless you’ve been hiding under a derby rock for the past couple of months, you probably know that tomorrow is Black & Blue 6, the annual charity bout of the Burning River Roller Girls. This year, we’ll be making a donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure Northeast Ohio out of proceeds from the bout.
Just in case you have any questions before the big day tomorrow, here is a handy guide with links to all of the details you need, so you don’t have to wade through the information on your own.
