In this way, the mayor points out, “after the success of the first edition, which brought together more than 200 skaters through the streets of Huelva, we want Huelva residents, children and adults, to be able to enjoy a lively day of skating, sports, and fun, promoting healthy leisure and integration, since by registering for this event, which has a symbolic cost of 3 euros, they will be supporting a good cause and will be entered into a raffle for skates valued at 300 euros”.
As Mavi Llordén, president of GiraRolller, has also indicated, “our objective is to promote skating in our city, so that it is not seen only as a sport that is learned as a child and then forgotten, and to do so in an inclusive manner, making people aware of also to the people of Huelva that in the city there are beautiful routes to discover on skates”.
People who go on scooters, skaters and cyclists are also invited to participate in this great skate party, since skateboarding or cycling are other options to participate in this event and the only requirement to do the tour will be that it be a vehicle on wheels without motor
For her part, Verónica Cabeza, director of two Aspapronias centers, stressed that “we would like people to discover life on wheels, because it offers a vision that changes everything.” In addition, “it will also be a very inclusive day, since they will be collaborating as volunteers in the different user activities of our entity in order to give visibility to people of all abilities, since that is the way to change society.”
This event, which has the collaboration of other Huelva clubs such as Roller House and Onuba Rollers for its development, will have as its starting point the tents on Avenida de Andalucía, from where a route will begin that will also culminate in this space, where the animation will be present after the whole day with numerous proposals and surprises for attendees.
