EAST PROVIDENCE â€” Last winter, Kevin Robinson, his wife, Robin, and numerous others came together to organize the first-ever Ride With KROB/Family Fun Festival. They did so to raise money for the pro BMX tricksterâ€™s KROB Foundation, one that strives to provide East Providence youths with the opportunity to take part in sports they covet.
The foundation collected approximately $20,000, and with that money helped needy children afford registration and equipment for a variety of athletics, including football, baseball, soccer, even karate.
EAST PROVIDENCE â€” Legendary BMX professional and multi-X Games medalist Kevin Robinson considers it a phenomenal gift from his sponsor, Target Inc.
Back in November, Robinson had flown to Minneapolis to take care of some business at Target headquarters, and thatâ€™s when officials approached him, requesting he find a group of 15 children, those who revel in the sports of BMX and skateboarding.
