The Rollettes and Coloplast Announce National Sponsorship to Empower Women Who Roll

By Hailey Wachlarowicz-Bayer, Coloplast

With the first 2021 event in Chicago on June 25-27, the Abilities Expo is back, and we are thrilled to see our community reuniting on the other side of the pandemic. Joining forces to support women who roll, the Rollettes and Coloplast have collaborated to help bring this fantastic wheelchair dance group back to the Expo too!

Get your free pass to join us at the Expo to meet the Rollettes in person as they perform their inclusive choreography while greeting families and new friends at the Coloplast-sponsored Adaptive Climbing Wall, conducted by No Limits, throughout our free, three-day event. Coloplast is also the gracious Diamond-Level sponsor of the 2021 Rollettes Experience that will take place in Los Angeles on July 22-25.

Encouraging Women and Kids Nationwide

"I'd like to thank Coloplast for making the Rollettes Experience possible this year," Rollettes founder Chelsie Hill says. "We all had such a scary year last year. As the creator of the Rollettes Experience, I'm incredibly thankful that Coloplast is jumping on board to make the Rollettes Experience possible for all of our attendees, in-person and virtual, in 2021!"

"We are honored to uplift the Rollettes' vision of bringing women across the country together for fellowship, dance, and education at their annual conference," Coloplast Marketing Director Sergej van Gorkum shares. "Their mission of personal empowerment aligns perfectly with our goal of making life easier for people with intimate healthcare needs, throughout the community we serve nationwide."

Each summer, the Rollettes host an experience, bringing together people from all over the globe. Open to all ages and abilities, we welcome you to partake in this life-changing bundle of moments, regardless of dance background. For many of our attendees, the Rollettes Experience is more than just dance. It's about finding someplace where you fit in perfectly.

Chelsie Hill Found More Independence with SpeediCath Compact Female

"I've been using the SpeediCath® Compact female catheter, the first catheter I used when I was in the hospital for rehab. It gave me a sense of freedom and independence. SpeediCath® Compact Female wasn't scary to me," Chelsie saysꭞ.
