If you have reached this page that means that you must be a friend and are thinking of donating.
First off, I just want to say thank you. Most of my donors donate year after year. This is a cause that I believe in. Thank you for supporting it with me. This will be my fifth time riding.
The ride is a fundraising event that supports two organizations, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center's AIDS/HIV programs. Both of these organizations not only do work in their local communities but also work to help those affected with AIDS/HIV nationally. I've learned so much about myself, the HIV/AIDS community and the work that these two organizations do.
I learned about PrEP a drug if taken regularly can stop one from getting infected with HIV! So many people don't know about this drug and we must spread the word.
I learned what undetectable means and that once you are undetectable you can't spread the virus. Yet so many people don't know this and are fearful of those that are undetectable.
I learned that the funds raised help those living with HIV, including families, homeless, women and children. They truly do amazing work.
And most importantantly I learned that I have a groups of friends, family, and co-workers that want to make a difference in this world. I know you all can't ride 545 mile to raise aweness and funds to fight HIV/AIDS, but you are making a difference in this effort.
Last year in 2018 I raised $6,424. This year I'm shooting for the stars (again) in hopes to raise $10,000!!! I know you can help get me there ... every dollar counts.
