As the entire world knows, the Corona virus has turned everything upside down and inside out. Our everyday norms are no more. Events, big and small, have been delayed, postponed or cancelled and AIDS/LifeCycle is no exception, for 2020 the physical ride has been cancelled.
However, it was never really about the miles, it was really helping the programs continue to do the amazing work that they offer by raising much needed funds, and in that spirit the purpose of the ride continues.
Both the SF AIDS Foundation and the LA-LGBT Center offer numerous programs to battle HIV/AIDS and provide care for those still affected by the disease. In order for these programs to continue, we the AIDS/LifeCycle community has been challenged to continue our fund-raising efforts. AIDS was once a Pandemic and we, the fighting community, made an impact and HIV/AIDS is now a manageable disease. We simply cannot stop the fight just because the ride has been cancelled.
Please, join me in continuing the fight against HIV/AIDS with a generous donation to AIDS/LifeCycle.
