It's time to lace up the skates and take to the rink on Saturday night for a good cause. 

Strong Island Derby Revolution is playing a co-ed match against the Man’s Ruin Roller Derby of Chester, NY at 7 p.m. Saturday at World Gym Racquet & Sports Arena in East Setauket. Both teams skate to benefit a mutual friend, retired NYPD officer Leonard Crawford. 

Crawford has been recently diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. It is a terminal disease with no known cure and an average life expectancy of 2-5 years after the date of diagnosis. 

Tickets to Saturday's match are $15 at the door. Children under age 8 are free. All profits will go directly to the Crawford family for medical expenses.
