I'M RIDING TO END AIDS
The funds I raise will enable the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center and San Francisco AIDS Foundation help those impacted by HIV get the treatment and care they need and provide targeted prevention efforts for high risk populations. From May31-June 6, 2020 I'm bicycling in AIDS/LifeCycle. It's a 7-day 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to make a world of difference in the lives of people living with HIV and AIDS.
I ask for your support because:
* I am riding in memory of people who lost to their battle to this terrible disease, to many friends to count.
* I am riding in honor of the new and old friends who live with HIV and AIDS and fight that battle every day.
* I am riding in celebration of my 57th birthday!
* I am riding so the next generation doesn't have to live through the loss I have endured.
* MOST importantly I am riding to make a difference and by helping me you are all making a difference.
I'm able to ride. I'm able to help. Here I am doing my part. I'm asking you to help and sponsor me. Some of you are my close friends or family and some I have never met in person. It takes ALL of you to help me reach my fundraising goal so please be as generous as you can and remember that it's tax-deductible and your company might match funds.
No donation is too small or too large -- together we will make a difference.
Help me support AIDS/LifeCycle by giving what you can. Just click the links below to my ALC Participant Page and make your tax-deductible charitable contribution. We'll keep riding until AIDS and HIV are a thing of the pastHelp me support AIDS/LifeCycle by giving what you can, in any way possible ($5.00, $50.00 or $500.00). Throughout the years my fundraising has been so humbling for me, the donations I received surpassed each goal I set for myself year after year. The kindness of each donor shows me the good that is still in everyone. By starting now, I know with your help, I will far exceed this years goal. We'll keep riding until AIDS and HIV are a thing of the past. This disease knows no boundaries of race, age, gender or sexual orientation.
Thank you for your donation today and I truly hope to see you at the finish line when we ride into LA (talk about the perfect ending, seeing your smiling faces as I ride across that finish line would be so amazing.)
