Together for a good cause: ENERGETIX business partners, Joey Kelly and the RTL television channel’s telethon!

Social respon­si­bil­i­ty and the hunt for world records – how do they go togeth­er? ENERGETIX does not only design and sell high-qual­i­ty design­er jew­ellery with inte­grat­ed mag­nets but also always gives its busi­ness part­ners the oppor­tu­ni­ty to take part in extra­or­di­nary events and to expe­ri­ence very spe­cial and emo­tion­al moments with­in the team.

On 2425 Novem­ber, for instance, a group of ENERGETIX busi­ness part­ners were able to take part in the 24-hour bike chal­lenge at the RTL tele­vi­sion channel’s telethon and then break a world record: Joey Kel­ly, extreme sports per­son­al­i­ty and enthu­si­as­tic sportEX fan, joined the ENERGETIX team and 25 oth­er com­pa­ny teams to cycle for 24 hours on spin­ning bikes to gen­er­ate elec­tric­i­ty that was then sold with the pro­ceeds going to a good cause … the ‘RTL – Wir helfen Kindern’ foun­da­tion. They were even able to break the world record for the ‘largest amount of elec­tric­i­ty gen­er­at­ed by mus­cle pow­er on sta­tion­ary bikes’! Con­grat­u­la­tions!


“Phys­i­cal­ly I feel quite good. I had a low dur­ing the night but every­one here cheered me on. I’m so grate­ful to be a part of the telethon,” Joey said hap­pi­ly as he climbed from his spin­ning bike for the first time in 24 hours.And the busi­ness part­ners also enjoyed the phys­i­cal­ly chal­leng­ing mega-event and bask in the feel­ing of hav­ing con­quered it as a team and hav­ing made an impor­tant con­tri­bu­tion to a good cause.

This way to the pho­tos!

Jes­si­ca Schlick, mem­ber of ENERGETIX’s man­age­ment, was even live in RTL’s stu­dio to hand over the funds col­lect­ed by ENERGETIX to the host, Wol­fram Kons, who accept­ed on behalft of the ‘RTL – Wir helfen Kindern’ char­i­ty: sym­bol­i­cal­ly in the shape of one of ENERGETIX’s mag­net­ic bracelets in which the total had been engraved – a mag­nif­i­cent 70,000 euros!

Char­i­ty has always been and is of spe­cial impor­tance to Roland Förster. So ENERGETIX’s founder was par­tic­u­lar­ly hap­py to be able to make a deci­sive con­tri­bu­tion to the foundation’s projects as one of the main spon­sors of the 24-hour bike chal­lenge.

Joey Kel­ly, who is a friend of the busi­ness, and the 26 high­ly moti­vat­ed com­pa­ny teams that took on the chal­lenge gen­er­at­ed funds totalling 733,000 euros this year!   RTL’s 21st telethon, the longest char­i­ty show on Ger­man TV, gen­er­at­ed a remark­able sum of 7.8 mil­lion euros to help chil­dren in need.
