THE ROLLETTES EXPERIENCE DEVELOPs A GROWING SISTERHOOD OF WOMEN EMPOWERING WOMEN WHO HAVE DISABILITIES. THE PROGRAM CULMINATEd this year in THE ROLLETTES EXPERIENCE interNATIONAL CAMP IN LOS ANGELES.
The powerful movement of women empowering other women is at it again! The Rollettes, a wheelchair dance team, founded by Chelsie Hill in 2012, just wrapped up an incredible event that took place in Los Angeles from August 16-19 and focused on the boundless potential of women who roll.
More than 100 ladies and 25 kids from 9 countries attended this year’s Rollettes Experience! We hope you’ll enjoy the photo collage below featuring highlights from the event.
This wheelchair dance team is made up of seven extraordinary women, Chelsie Hill, Steph Aiello, Samantha Lopez, Morgan Ott, Edna Serrano, Maria Rabaino, and Kaitlyn Staten, who are all friends with different injuries and abilities. While constantly breaking the glass ceiling, the Rollettes mission statement is clear; “Women empowering women with disabilities to live boundlessly and shift perspectives through dance.”
These game changers who comprise the Rollettes have created a community that redefines what it means to be strong, female, and resilient.
They encourage tens of thousands of young women daily via social media and YouTube with their can-do attitude and “actions speak louder than words” mentality, while documenting their lives of challenges, obstacles and goal to be boundless.
A very important member of the disability community, Cure Medical, partnered with the Rollettes in their goal to create a sisterhood that redefines what it means to live your best life in a chair. The Cure Medical financial commitment included sponsoring the Rollettes Experience International Camp.
“I’m really thankful that Cure Medical is encouraging those living in a wheelchair to live their healthiest and fullest life. They financially support research for a cure for spinal cord injury and disease while also helping people celebrate the life they have now. This shared mission is also what Rollettes is all about too,” Rollettes founder Chelsie Hill says.
This collaboration comes at a time when the desire for healthcare products that are not made with harmful chemicals has become a necessity to help people like the Rollettes stay strong and on a roll during their busy year.
“The Rollettes consistently embody our shared values of support, strength and grace within the community we serve. Cure Medical is honored to financially support their educational and outreach programs that connect women in creative, collaborative and empowering ways,” Cure Medical vice president of marketing Lisa Wells explains.
“We’re thrilled to partner in the Rollettes’ overall mission to help develop the next generation of strong women who roll,” Wells says.
