A few days ago, a good friend of ours and local Arizona rider Jeremy “Zuka” Hacker, was diagnosed with Leukemia. He has already begun chemotherapy. Zuka is completely uninsured and is beginning to take the necessary steps to get some sort of coverage through the state. Regardless, his bills are going to be insane.
A few friends are putting together a benefit jam on December 29th in Glendale, Arizona at the X-Court skatepark. There’s going to be a BBQ at the park during the jam with t-shirt sales, grab bags, raffles and pretty much anything and everything to generate money for Jeremy. Shadow will be doing its part and donating some gear to be given away also.
On a personal note, Zuka and his crew have been an incredible influence on me and Shadow AM rider Eric Bahlman. A legend in the Arizona scene, this dude has not stopped killing it for more than a decade. We hope everyone can band together and show your support for this one of a kind human being.
If you would like to make a donation TODAY, you can send it via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org. A Chase bank account is currently being set up specifically for the jam and online donations and we will keep you posted when that becomes live.
For all the details please follow the Jeremy Hacker Benefit Jam facebook event page.
