This year, on Sunday the 28th of august, the Amsterdam city swim will take place. Wallien is proud to announce to be one of the event partners of this iconic occasion. During the Amsterdam city swim, people will swim through the canals of Amsterdam to raise money for the muscle disease ALS. The foundation wants to raise as much money as possible for scientific research to improve quality of life for those with this debilitating condition.
This year is a particularly special occasion; it is the 10th anniversary of the Amsterdam city swim. In previous years, around 3000 people have gathered to join the swim. Although swimming is the main thing, you can also come and watch, donate money, or work as a volunteer.
As an eco-friendly watersports brand, Wallien will lend itself as a partner to this charity that supports watersports, bodily movement, and health in our beautiful city. Wallien has already been working with ACS for over three years.
Wallien is designing special ACS 2022 open water wetsuits for this extraordinary occasion.
These will be designed to maximise comfort for both breaststroke and front crawl swimmers through attention to fit and flexibility. Flexibility will be enhanced by super-stretch inner fabric and strategically placed seams. Furthermore, the wetsuit contains a YKK zipper (with a drawstring), and extra-secure closure ensures carefree water activity. The suits are available in different sizes and specific models for men and women. These wetsuits represent the quality and message of our brand, meaning that the wetsuits are made of sustainable materials like limestone neoprene. This material is even warmer and more flexible than other similar materials, but other than that, it is more eco-friendly.
Per wetsuit, €25- will be donated to Amsterdam City Swim. This wetsuit is also sold without profit and therefore has a very attractive price, and a comparable wetsuit with the same materials is considerably more expensive in the store.
