Rico Race, alleycat for injured member of beloved courier community.

Today in AlleyCat race news a special fundraiser and tribute to a well know courier from DC who was hurt on the job:

Saturday, 3rd of December...
demon cats a race collective in the nation's capital has organized the event...

from the nybma website, which I believe a bunch of NYC's finest are going to DC to represent...

"Rico has been a stalwart part of the messenger scene for over 15 years. A month ago, he was involved in hit-and-run in DC. He has been in the hospital ever since, spending most of the time in a coma. If you've been around for a while, you know who he is. If you haven't been around for a while, you know someone who's upset because of this. The people in Copenhagen have already thrown an alleycat to raise money for him. This Saturday, DC's Demon Cats are throwing the Rico Suave race to help raise money for Rico and his Mother. Getting to DC is a cheap, 4-hour ride on the Chinatown Bus, so if you can make it, you should go. The race registration is at 3pm at Dupont Circle."

Many companies have come forward to aid in the effort:

Crumpler bags
Kryptonite locks
Apple Courier

Good Luck to all race participants and to Rico...a speedy recovery.
