JoeyBaila is pretty awesome and needs some help

hi everyone, this is my friend Joey IMG 122320800710685 zps0658cd85
He's a pretty cool guy

Though sometimes he does douchey things like this
IMG 122371149537904 zps2e561cc8
But we forgive him...

Cuz he has a pretty hot girlfriend
IMG 122426711035697 zps6068ff26
IMG 122661877312845 1 zps9b7a9aba

not only that, he races in CMRA and even TMGP
IMG 122494068934473 zps1cd6f07f

He is a pretty cool guy all around. He has helped a lot of people around this site and others. Not only on the street but also at the track...

Here is a picture of him helping with a fundraiser for a rider that had a bad wreck on 3090.
IMG 122527753349096 zps3a3477bb

pretty awesome guy, no?


Well, this guy now needs our help....


Some of you might not know but back in 2007, Joey had kidney failure and had to go through some years of dialysis to stay relatively healthy and functioning. I know first hand this is no picnic as my dad had done it for years.

Finally Joey was able to get a transplant that was supposed to fix everything and all was well. Unfortunately not too long ago, Joey's body rejected the transplant and had to return back to the Hospital. Now back on dialysis for three times a week and after being in the hospital for 9 days. Medical bills and medicine costs start to pile up.

Joey, has been having a hard time working like he used to, he was/is self employed and also teaches salsa classes (which explains his flair and hot girlfriend). But the dialysis gets in the way of putting the same hours as he used to.

Here is where we can come in and make a difference for him.

I'm asking for you to see if there is anything you could spare to contribute in order to raise some money to assist Joey with this rough patch in his life. THERE IS NO OBLIGATION. But if you can help, please do.

Part of what I will do is post his paypal that he started in order to collect money to help with medical bills and medicine on this thread. I will also ask for people that show up to the central meet in November to contribute $5 when entering the raffle. We are not trying to make anyone go broke here.

I know Joey would do the same for anyone else in his position if he could help, he has done it before.

For those of you that do not participate in the central meet or don't like to make it public that you are contributing, here is the paypal you can donate to: joeygkidneyfund@gmail.com. Thank you in advance for your help.

Thank you very much for reading and hope we can show Joey how a community comes together for one of our own.

Let's go!

Ivan thanks for posting it up. I know Joey would NEVER ask for help and he wouldn't want anyone posting up either.
Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE at some point in their life needs help in some way. I will do what I can to help.

Anyone here need tires changed, basic maintenance like oil change, spark plug, airfilter, chain, sprockets.. bike wash...detail...please PM me and ill take care of it for you...100% of the labor charge will go to his paypal.

Chris5.0 please pay-pal the cash you were going to pay me for the tires.
I could do a ride to raise some money too..

It's been decided, the November central meet will be the place.

I was waiting to post this before asking the sponsors, so they could see it was legit.

By the way, I was contacted by a local news station as a possibility to do a story about our central meet.

Would be a great opportunity to showcase how we come together. And have a more positive light in contrast to the recent bad stuff.
