24Kika becomes Powerslide24kika

New sponsor of 24Kika

Powerslide, one of the the world’s largest manufacturers of roller skates, makes a commitment to support the largest, most special and most fun skate event of Netherlands: 24kika ‘skating against cancer’.

Working together

The Organization of 24kika is very happy with the arrival of Powerslide as a sponsor. President Rik Nijkamp: “We have a long lasting relationship with Powerslide already. Powerslide has already sponsored prizes and t-shirts for the event for a couple of years. They have made their sample skates ONE TWENTY FIVE available for participants of the event as well as for visitors. During our long-lasting contact we have talked about the great (growth) potential of the event, certainly with the help of Powerslide.”

Supporting the fight against childhood cancer
Powerslide has made a name for itself both in the large recreational sector as well as in the competition sector. Erik Schaper of Powerslide Netherlands: “I have watched the event in recent years and find the combination of skating and the support for the fight against child cancer fantastic. It also very good to see how the event develops and grows each year. Together with my colleague Scott Arlidge we decided to put our shoulders to the event by sponsoring it and help out where we can in order to ensure further growth. It’s great to see how recreational skaters and more professional ‘speed skaters’ during this weekend meet.”

Powerslide was founded in 1994 with the aim to make the best skate products for all forms of skating. Powerslide was founded by ex-skaters and is located in Bindlach (Germany). From Germany the products of Powerslide are delivered in 87 countries around the world each year. Many (world)champions use Powerslide skates, even the most famous of them: Bart Swings.

About 24Kika
24kika ‘skating against cancer’ is an event that centers about teams skating 24 hours straight, in teams of 1 to 6 people in support of the fight against childhood cancer. During the event, sociability, cooperation and performance go hand in hand. It is driven in relay form, so at all times there must be one rider from each team making laps on the track. Each team participates in his or her own pace and strategy. Both new and experienced skaters go hand in hand during these 24 hours. Per person at least € 150 euros must be collected for charity (for example by selling lottery tickets), but of course many teams set up unique and various sponsorship actions to raise more money.
