Thirteen Challengers got into their seats on 4 and 5 June of the fastest, longest and highest roller coaster of the Benelux: Troy. All for charity and for 24 hours. Ten of them finished after 325 spins. “An almost superhuman performance”, says Caroline Kortooms, general director of Toverland. After the Challenge it was revealed that the amount of € 11,035 was raised for Stichting Heppie.
The start signal for the race was given on 4 June by Heppie ambassadors Natasja and René Froger. The Challengers left, accompanied by loud cheering, for a 24-hour ride. During the first ride they were accompanied by famous Youtubers Dylan Haegens and Marit Brugman. They wanted to support the Challengers this way.
Visitors were able to join the Challengers for fifteen minutes or longer by buying seats of the wooden roller coaster. By doing so, they directly supported Stichting Heppie, a foundation that helps children in the Netherlands by giving them a carefree holiday. The Challenge raised the beautiful amount of € 11,035. “With this money we at Stichting Heppie can help so many more children. Fantastic!”, says Nina Schmitz, director of Stichting Heppie.
