The Grand Forks Roller Derby team took their skates to the car wash today.

The Forx Roller Derby girls held a fundraiser car wash at Hugo's on 32nd Avenue in Grand Forks.

The non-profit group washed cars all afternoon for a free will donation. And within three hours they raised $250.

The girls say they hope to raise enough money to rent out bigger venues, like the Alerus Center, to play at.

And today the weather helped them get closer to their goal.

"Things like our insurance, renting facilities that we can go and practice at. Like, right now we're renting the Blue Line- it costs money. So we have to find a place to live permanently too. So all of it will kind of go towards renting those areas," Christin McWaters with Forx Roller Derby said.

Forx Roller Derby was started in May, and they have held a couple fundraisers but hope to do more.
