A few days ago we mentioned the attack on Jorge Luzuriaga
and the fundraiser. Now his friends are organizing a benefit jam
in San Jose:
"One of the NorCal BMX Family's goals was to replace his bike. We already raised our goal of $1,200 - and with generous parts donations plus the cash donated, we will be able to replace his old, beat-up klunker with a brand new flatland ride
. Any money left over will go to the Luzuriaga's to help with medical and dental bills
Jorge is the primary wage earner, supporting he and his wife while she attends medical school to better their lives.
With that, we are holding a JAM to further raise money for the Luzuriaga's
. It will be on September 8th, 2013 at Lake Cunningham Regional Skatepark. Flatland, park and street riders are welcome."All the details are available here: OldSkoolGeorge's BMX Benefit Jam!
