Holeshots for the Hungry: CXM’s Food Drive Call-ups at Cow Palace
Feed the hungry, get the holeshot and come home a winner this Saturday at Bike Monkey’s Cow Palace cyclocross race in San Francisco with Cyclocross Magazine’s Food Drive Call-ups!
Forget blowing your warm up and lining up 30 minutes before the start just to get that holeshot. This Saturday, the generous, not the patient, get rewarded with the best starting positions. Bring your canned or packaged non-perishable food, home baked treat, or favorite beverage to the start of your race. Cyclocross Magazine will collect your donations, and you’ll be escorted up to the front of the race.
And even though hand-downs are now all the rage, you can participate in this new trend without having to race with your pockets full – we’ll take them from you at the start line.
Your donations will go to feed the hungry during this Thanksgiving week. Packaged and canned foods will be donated to a local food bank to feed the poor. Want to influence our prize giveaway? Home baked items will be devoured by Cyclocross Magazine’s hungry helpers. Tasty brews and adult beverages will be consumed responsibly by our underpaid staff. Work for “big media” and want to see us dead? Here’s your chance!
Put some effort into it and you’ll be further rewarded. The best, most creative or most generous food donations will receive special prizes, which may include magazine subscriptions, gift certificates, or cold, hard cash! Label your donation and find us after your race finish to see if you’ve won. Prizes will be available for each start time!
