I'M RIDING TO FIGHT HIV/AIDS...FOR THE 4th TIME!!!
From May 31st - June 6th, over 2,500 cyclists will participate in AIDS/Lifecycle, a 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. This is a fundraising event, benefiting the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBTQ Center.
AIDS/LIFECYCLE 2020 will mark my fourth ride... I come to you for help, I wouldn't be able to do it alone.
I decided to sign up again because I want to help our community and give back, and with so much happening around the world I feel that this is the time in our lives that we need to come together and help each other and be the tool for a positive change. I've done this event before so I know what is expected, I know the hard training that is ahead and hard work of fundraising. Is a big commitment, but it's all for a good cause.
Today I ask you for your help and support!!!
The services provided as a result of AIDS Lifecycle mean the world to those who receive the services provided by these two organizations, and your support means a lot to me.
