Voodoo Unicycles will be embarking on their greatest challenge yet! Come July 30th, Team Voodoo and 6 friends, will be attempting to do the world’s first 24 hour Extreme Unicycling display in Edinburgh to raise money for UNICEF, a charity which helps children and mothers in developing countries. 12 of the countries top riders in Street, Trials and Flatland, will split into groups, making sure that at least 4 riders are on the course at one time, allowing the others to take in food, drink and rest. They will keep doing this for 24 earth hours, that’s one whole day of non-stop Extreme Unicycling entertainment!!!
The demo will start at 12pm on July 30th and end 12pm July 31st, at the National Galleries on The Mound, in Edinburgh.
Can you believe it, we’re struggling to get sponsors to support our 24 hour demonstration in aid of UNICEF.
If anyone in the Unicyclist community thinks they can help us, maybe has friends in high places (no matter how high or low), we’d really appreciate it. Not only is this a world’s first in Unicycling, nothing like this has ever been attempted in other Urban Sports and of course, the money raised will go to helping the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves in developing countries. Curing those who otherwise would have died of primitive diseases, things we wouldn’t think twice about here. Supporting mothers who find it hard enough to feed themselves, let alone the multiple children they may have.
At the risk of sounding desperate, if you can help, please please PLEASE get in touch. Either post back here or email us through the website www.voodoounicycles.com. Less than 4 weeks to go!
Hi Jason, I’ve posted it on a small business forum, silly question but have you contacted all the local newspapers? + any local community websites. Maybe good old flyering in show windows closer to the time?
If all 8852 of you guys donate ONLY £1 to UNICEF for our 24 hour demo, we’ll be almost double over our target. So far, only 15 people have donated. If this has embarrased you into donating, click on this link and get it done! http://www.voodoounicycles.com/demo.php
Thanks to everyone who has already donated or is just about to
We are also looking for one rider to come and help demo with us. You will have to be competent in either street or trials, be able to ride our rig without problems (Boxes are 1ft and 3ft high, normally have 4/5ft gaps in between) and ideally have experience of riding in front of an audience under pressure. If you think you’re upto it and can get to Edinburgh for 30th July, reply here or send us an email. Contact details on our website: VoodooUnicycles.com is for sale | HugeDomains
