Degidon Challenge

Posted Posted by Color of Hope in Events, Message, Save Haiti Bike Ride, Uncategorized     Comments No comments

The Degidon Challenge AKA the Lage 2gidon Challenge is a way to promote awareness of an issue in Haiti that you, the challenger, care about. The challenge involves riding your bike hands free with an object on top of your head for 5 seconds or more.

Degidon Challenge for Haiti

Here is how it works:

Get someone to help you with the filming. Before riding say your name, what you’re doing and the issue you care about. Example: my name is …, I am taking the Degidon Challenge to bring awareness to the… situation in Haiti. You can say a quick little something about the issue. Challenge 3 or more of you friends. Then LAGE DEGIDON! Be creative.

– Your friends have 48 hours to do it or forfeit by making a financial donation to Color of Hope.

– One more thing. Post your video with the hashtag ‪#‎DegidonChallengeForHaiti‬ epidasit!
