I'm Riding to Give Back, Part Seven!
It's ON! After three long years, AIDS/LifeCycle is finally back, and I am beyond excited. To say that I have missed the Ride would be an understatement! Since the world seemed to stop in March 2019, the beneficiary agencies of the Ride, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center, had to pivot to continue serving their communities. They count on on this Ride, and desperately need these funds.
In June 2022, over 3,000 Cyclists, Roadies, and Virtual Cyclists will ride again in AIDS/LifeCycle, a 545-mile bike ride from SF to LA to raise the funds necessary for the life-saving services these agencies provide. And once again - for the seventh time - I will be one of them! This is a personal challenge for me, both physically and emotionally. I have lost friends to AIDS, and I ride for them.
We’re working together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. Will you support me by donating today? The services provided as a result of this event mean the world to those who receive them, and your support means the world to me.
