The Dew Tour has been giving awards to BMX vert competitor Kevin Robinson for years, and this May the decorated vert and big air athlete announced his own plans to give back.
“My family and I have returned to R.I. and I am pleased to announce the launch of the K-Rob Foundation,” Robinson said. “The K-Rob Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to transform the lives of deserving children in the East Providence R.I. community by keeping them involved in athletics.”
In the meantime, if you’re in the New England area, Robinson will be doing a free demo daily, July 15-18 during the East Providence Heritage Days. He’ll be riding at 8:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, and 5 p.m. on Sunday.
The K-Rob Foundation will be onsite at the Heritage Days to raffle off some amazing gear including Hoffman BMX Bikes, Tony Hawk autographed skateboard decks, Bucky Lasek autographed skateboard decks, Ogio Backpacks and more.
Alli will be checking in with Robinson later this month to hear all the details about his new foundation while he’s in Chicago competing at the Nike 6.0 BMX Open. For more information on the foundation, visit www.krobfoundation.org.
