I'M CYCLING 1,500 MILES !!
Because AIDS/LifeCycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles was cancelled (stupid Covid!), I've made a commitment to ride 1,500 miles by the end of June on the TogetheRide instead - still supporting the Los Angeles LGBT Center and their life saving services to end and prevent HIV/AIDS.
Over the past 4 years, all of you have helped me raise over $50,000.00 on AIDS/LifeCycle. Although that 1 week challenge is not possible this time around (organizers have smartly decided June 2021 would not be feasible), I am still riding my heart out and my ass off to support this amazing institution and what it does. And now working at the LGBT Center medical building as a volunteer, I see those dollars at work first hand and the people they are helping.
I cannot begin to tell you how much each and every contribution means to me. "The Ride" has also become a very personal journey, as well as a physical one. Both raising money to wipe out HIV/AIDS through treatment, testing, education and prevention AND also just as importantly, wiping out HIV stigma. Together with all my fellow riders, we have committed to collectively cycle 1.2 million miles to honor the 1.2 MM people living with HIV in the U.S. alone.
The services provided and made possible because of this ride, mean the world to those who receive them, and your support truly means the world to me - YOU will literally be saving lives!
I hope you will join me to support the LA LGBT Center and also make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past and make a DONATION today!! Every $10, $25, $50, $100... or more... makes a huge difference and means the world to me. PLEASE HELP ME HIT MY $5K GOAL

ps The donation page makes it extremely easy to pay in installments, so if you donate now you can split up your donation payments over the months before the ride. Think how easy contributing $10 or $20 a month over the next few months is!
