150Kč – 250Kč
Let’s explore the beautiful Prokopské Valley in Prague 5, have a friendly chat with like-minded people and, most importantly, support a fantastic cause!
All the proceeds of this walk will be donated to “Electric Eccentric”, a summer travel camp for people confined to an electric wheelchair.
Suggested donation is 200 CZK per person but the amount is up to you! Donate online (-> Add to Cart; or on darujme.cz) or in cash on the day.
Come along, let’s make a difference together!
I would like to invite you to a very special event, my first walk to raise money for a charity!
About Electric Eccentric (EE)
EE gives people with severe disabilities an opportunity to experience something we take for granted, i.e. going freely on a few days adventure, sleeping in tents and discovering Czech countryside.
The tagline and motto of EE, “z ležáka jezdec” which literally translates as “from bedridden to a rider”, aptly describes the idea.
For each rider two helpers are needed to build tents, assist with personal hygiene and multitude of other things depending on the particular needs of each participant.
And, since this is a traveling camp, a “rescue” vehicle is also necessary in case a wheelchair breaks down en route between two campsites.
The participants pay a small fee to take part and the rest is covered from donations. The assistants get paid a little to cover their expenses.
Since 2016 already 150 bedridden people have become riders!
I chose to support this cause because I have been an EE assistant myself and know first hand how life changing and rewarding the experience is.
Vašek Uher, the founder and main organizer of EE will join us on the walk and tell you more about it.
Sunday June 11 at 10:00 am, outside of “Hůrka” metro B station (there is only one exit).
About 9 km of walking on wheelchair accessible trails, mostly flat or downhill (not more than 100 meters of vertical gain in total).
Suitable for people who are new to hiking and want to build up their stamina, as well as for children and strollers.
You can also donate using your employee benefit card or vouchers! I will cover the benefit commission so the full amount will go to EE. The following benefits are accepted:

I wanted to organize a charity walk for a long time and finally muster the initiative and energy to do it. I will be very grateful if you help me to make it a success!
Thank you and see you on the walk!!
