Thank you for joining me in this cause!
June 2rd - June 8th, over 3,000 Cyclists, Roadies and Virtual Cyclists will be participating in AIDS/LifeCycle, a 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise funds for the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. This year, I'll be one of them! 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.
It's been six years since I participated in ALC and I'm excited to be back in the saddle to do it again!
I ride for tolerance. I ride for hope that the things that polarize and divide us a nation will not affect the way we care, the way we educate our youth, and the way we support the courageous souls living with this disease. I ride to support the heroic work of the SF AIDS Foundation and Los Angeles LGBT Center who do not sit by and let this be forgotten. I ride for a cure. Will you support me by making a donation today?

Why I ride.
Tel Aviv, November 28, 2001. I am about to start fertility treatments and on my 28th birthday receive results from the second of two HIV screens as "inconclusive". The volunteer at the anonymous testing center sits me down and tells me that even though the confirmatory HIV western blot test had not been administered, I needed to accept the fact that I was probably HIV positive. Definitely the worst birthday of my life. Steph calls me and senses something was horribly wrong. Within half an hour she had resources and treatment info and told me that there was hope. 5 days later, the hospital called that my test came back negative. Together we can end AIDS. This is why I ride. Please support my fundraising for ALC 2019.
