It wasn't your ordinary roller derby game at the Washington County Fairgrounds Saturday evening.

The Hades Ladies of the First Settlement Derby Dames held a home game to raise money for the Humane Society of the Ohio Valley.

People came out to see the roller skaters getting physical and having fun at the same time for a very good cause.

This is the second year they put on this fundraiser to help our four-legged friends.

"Every home game, we try to pick an organization to help out. We like to do something that stays in our community that helps people, it feels great to help other people by doing something we enjoy doing," says Hades Ladies Team Captain, Sally Thompson.

the Hades Ladies hopes to raise more than $500 this year for the humane society.
