Dearest Friends -
It's time once again for the CA Aids LifeCyle. I am grateful for all you've done on this journey with me.
The Ride has so much meaning. It goes beyond raising millions for critical HIV/AIDS services. The Ride plays an important role in reducing and eliminating stigma. It empowers people. It provides a loving community. It provides compassion.
This Ride is also a big one. Not just because 2019 is my 7th consecutive LifeCyle Ride and 10th overall. But on Day 0 (the day before the Ride starts) I'll be turning 50! A milestone for me and one for us.
Importantly, though, over the years, I've raised a significant amount with your help and generosity. I commit to continuing to do that until the goal of ending AIDS is nearer to being a reality. Thank you for helping us get there.
Your friendship and support mean the world. With much love,
