We support local heroes
We support local heroes to increase the awareness of greater inclusivity in our society.
We are proud sponsors of Vegard Sørlie Krogsæther who has cerebral palsy. When he was 10 years old he had to quit football because it became too painful for him to continue. Vegard did not give up his passion for sports, and started in the local Sports Shooting Club and has already proved to be an athlete talent. His goal is to participate in the Paralympics in 2024.
Sekkingstad are very proud to be one of the ambassadors supporting Vegard.
