Robin Williams with one Final Act of Charity

robin williams death

The legacy of Robin Williams will live on long after his death, with gifts of laughter and gifts of charity.   The late actor donated a custom-made Pegorette bicycle to the Hotbed Benefit, which took place last Saturday night in Tiburon, California.  The event collected proceeds for 10,000 Degrees, an organization that provides educational opportunities for low income students

The bike, along with an autographed hat from the film “Night at the Museum” raised $20,000 and will pay for two students to attend college for a year.

Robin Williams, himself an avid cyclist and bike collector, used his love for cycling to help kids with disabilities through the Challenged Athletes Foundation.   Williams participated in 11 triathlons with the organization.  Rudy Garcia-Tolson, a double above-the-knee amputee competed with Robin Williams.   He said to Robin, “I can never thank you enough for going out of your way to make me smile.  Thank you for making me the luckiest kid alive.  Thank you for being a heck of a friend.”
