With DRD since
Dru got involved with Dolls through her co-worker Kyndra "Kay Daver" Gardner. She saw Kay post the NSO recruiting night event on Facebook. She had just endured a break-up with her boyfriend of 7 years and was in need of an activity to get her out of the house and some place where she could feel welcome and part of a team. The Denver Roller Dolls provided both; it has been an enormous healing and growing influence to learn new skills, meet new people and get good at NSOing.
Shortly after seeing her first bout Dru watched the movie "Whip It" in which Drew Barrymore both starred and directed. She felt it was a heartfelt portrayal of derby and it moved her to really seek a way to get involved. The name Dru Bloodymore is a tribute to her :)
