Hey fellow crossers, and especially PNW crossers -

Some of you may know the Bender family: they're the ones who show up, two parents, four boys, big truck, gear trailer, tents etc. at cross races through the season. The Benders - Mark, Sarah - race with Motofish Racing, and do track, road, and mtb events through the rest of the year.

Mark and Sarah Bender were spending last week in Hawaii to celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary. They left their four boys home. On their last day, Mark suffered a catastrophic injury, a C6/7 complete spinal cord injury. He had emergency surgery, and is recovering in a Hawaii ICU for what they think will be at least 2 weeks before he is stable enough to return home.

Another MoFi team mate and crazy fast racer Jenni Gaertner has organized a coffee fundraiser, courtesy of her generous sponsor DOMA coffee roasters. If you need to reload your coffee cupboard, or just want to reach out and help, please consider buying a bag or two from the DOMA site:

All proceeds from every $12.50 bag of coffee sold will go directly to the Bender family.

Appreciate your time.
