Over $60K raised for Charlie Knuth, Fox Valley boy battling cancer

When Charlie Knuth’s mother announced earlier this month that Charlie had been diagnosed with Lymphoma, Northeast Wisconsin’s motor racing community took notice.

Andy Monday, who races for Monday Motorsports, decided to take a door from his race car, autograph it, and place it up for auction on Facebook on Saturday, December 21.


In the post, he also challenged other racing teams to place similar items up for auction and donate 100-percent of proceeds to the Knuth family.
In a phone conversation Thursday morning, Monday told Local 5 he anticipated a few local teams to take part in the fundraiser.

“I thought maybe half a dozen drivers would get involved,” Monday said, “maybe we could raise a couple hundred dollars.”
As it turns out, that was a low estimate.


“It’s really just taken a life of its own,” Monday said.


So far, Monday reports, over 100 racing teams from across the Midwest have placed a car door up for auction.
