RIDE - LOVE - LIVE
I RIDE out of LOVE for those with HIV and those at risk for getting HIV. I fundraise so that they will LIVE!
May 31 - June 6th, 2020 will be MY EIGHTH YEAR participating in AIDS Lifecycle. In 2019, my HERO DONORS finished #25 in total fundraising contributing $26,665.00 toward the RECORD BREAKING $16.7 MILLION raised by AIDS Lifecycle 2019! With governmental cuts that have hurt all AIDS Education and service organizations, it is more important than ever that we raise as much as possible for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the LA LGBT Center.
I believe I must keep riding and fundraising given the current political climate in the United States. My fellow riders and roadies with AIDS Lifecycle have become my tribe and the fundraising is fundamental to my participation. In fact, it is the most important part of this experience. I hope you will partner with me again for AIDS Lifecycle 2020. WE REACHED THE BIRTHDAY GOAL and are now over $30,000.00 for AIDS Lifecycle 2020.
ALC 2020 Total = $29,327 + $783 (unposted matching $$)= $30,110.00

I donated the first $1000 putting my money where my heart is like I do every year! Please join me again and BRING YOUR HEART. WE WILL CONTINUE making an incredible difference in the world! Our SUCCESSES fundraising are helping insure there will be a future when HIV disease is a thing of the past and the next generation will be free of this disease!
May 22nd, 2020 will be the 14th anniversary of the death of my former partner, Allen Bodine, who died of AIDS in 2006. We were together 21 years! What my Hero Donors and I have done and will do with our fundraising has transformed his tragic death into LIFE for others! The Fullness of my adult life is reflected in how I spend my energies. I hope too that these energies reflect my highest, positive intentional values. My philanthropic efforts through cycling add purpose and meaning to my life beyond my wildest expectations and inspire me to continue in service to humanity.
Together we can do ANYTHING!!
Diversity is our Strength but Unity is our Power.

BENEFICIARIES OF DONATIONS
The AIDS Lifecycle bike ride means the world to those who receive education, HIV testing, treatment and support as a result of this event, and your support means the world to me! Last year, AIDS Lifecycle raised over $16.7 million for the SF AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. This ride is a huge endeavor involving several thousand participants to make it successful benefitting programs in San Francisco, Los Angeles, nationally and worldwide.

It's great if you give because I asked you or you think it's cool that, as a 68 year old, I will ride my bike from San Francisco to L.A.(545 miles). However, I want you to give because it matters... because this struggle is not over! I need YOU and I am confident you will help! Please click on the DONATE NOW BUTTON and give as generously as you can. Any amount will do no matter how small you think it is! It ALL adds up!
*** DID YOU KNOW, YOU CAN DIVIDE YOUR PAYMENT UP OVER 2 - 10 MONTHS. $10 a month= $100, $50 a month= $500, $100 a month=$1000 (and, we get credit for the full amount right away).
Don't forget corporate matching from your employer. If you need help coordinating any corporate matching, please contact me and I will work with donor services to help you. Matching is an important part of my fundraising! For ALC 2019 we received $9,716.88 in matching funds.
