Kick Crocodile. One more reason why to ride a scooter

Join the Kick Italy team and kick off a charity project called KICK CROCODILE with them. Every kilometer travelled means 1 CZK donated to charity.

In a few days, the guys from the Kick Italy 2017 team are going to try something that nobody ever has – to accomplish the challenging stage race Giro d'Italia on scooters!!! There is a true scooter hell awaiting them - steep climbs, riding in full traffic, nights in tents and physical strain on the edge of human possibilities. More

The boys, however, have an extra reason for not giving up and for reaching the Milan cathedral, and that is the children with severe multiple disabilities from THE PINK CROCODILE SCHOOL.

KICK ITALY + PINK CROCODILE = KICK CROCODILE

Dan Pilát on KICK CROCODILE

"I have met the people of Pink Crocodile through my seven-year-old son, Ondra, whose school is involved in an integration program, in which healthy and disabled children spend time together doing plenty of activities.”

When I saw them run the Prague half-marathon with our kids with no ambition for victory, I got an idea how to help them and help the Kick Italy boys who were looking for a higher purpose for their scooter adventure at the same time."

Dan Pilát, the head of the Yedoo brand, who has a great talent for connecting people together, is the one who has introduced The Pink Crocodile Charity, which is improving the lives of disabled children and supporting their education, to the team.

A unique KICK CROCODILE project came into existence, which can be joined by you as well. For each kilometer travelled, Yedoo and Kickbike (as the main partners of Kick Italy) will donate 1 CZK to the pink crocodile. The goal is to collect 50,000 CZK for building a new school´s building and a children's hospice of THE PINK CROCODILE SCHOOL.

If everything goes well, the Giro boys will collect 25 004 CZK exactly and the rest is up to you. WILL YOU GO FOR IT?

I want to participate but I do not have a scooter

“We originally planned to push the scooters up Mont Ventoux since the route ascends quite steeply, but when you see the huge crowds of fans lining each side of the road and cheering you up, you can’t help but get on your scooter and push off hard,” the Yedoo team riders agree and add: “It was such an unforgettable experience!”
