Folks from all corners of the Bay Area turned up today to show their support for Kachusha “Chuey” Munkanta at today’s Soil Saloon cyclocross race. There was racin’, drinkin, slingshootin’, dancin’ and much hootin’ and hollerin’ on his behalf. Everyone who raced got to take a photo with the man himself, who was in good spirits and thanked everyone for their love and support. His healing process has been slow but steady, and he’ll still be laying low for a while as he continues his recovery.
Proceeds from the race will go to Chuey, and you can buy raffle tickets from Market Street Cycles through the week. The raffle will be held on Sunday, December 2nd, and you don’t have to be present to win.
Local photographer Pamela Palma, who helped promote the event along with the dfL crew and Stevil, was on hand to take large format black-and-white portraits to help raise more money for Chuey. Pi Bar recently held a pizza fundraiser as well, and pushbike is selling a special t-shirt that you can buy online or in the shop. The indiegogo campaign is still going strong and may soon hit $12,000 for our beloved friend. We love you Chuey, and we all look forward to seeing you back on the bike in the near future.
