Thank you joining me on this adventure.
Ten years ago, I signed up for and rode my first Aids LifeCycle. Two years later I rode it again. In the intervening years, I helped train, advise and prepare hundreds of bicycle riders to do ride 545 miles. In those intervening years, I've also recovered from numerous injuries (broken bones and accidents) and fought cancer three separate times.
This year, I've decided to help directly the amazing San Francisco and Los Angeles organizations by raising money and once again riding my bicycle from San Francisco to Los Angeles from June 5th through June 11th. Although I may be a bit late getting started, I'm confident I can meet my goals.
Please help these organizations (and me) by donating to this important cause. They (the orgs) use this money to fund programs that help those with HIV/AIDS as well as educate at risk communities about safe (disease prevention) practices.
I've arranged my company to match every donation dollar for dollar (up to $5K), so you're donation, which already has an excellent adminstrative cost profile, will go even farther. In addition, I've put together some fundraising incentives. Donations at the following levels will receive:
- $150+ Bottle of Andy's Homemade Dry Rub
- $250+ Andy's Homemade bread (Bay Area only)
- $500+ Three item combination of above
