Hello again to all my friends and family!
My 2021 charity is to support the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. This foundation means the world to those who receive treatment as a result of this event, and your support means the world to me.
I have committed to regular cycle training rides throughout the year, where I will be riding my bike up and down the hills of Northern California to raise funds and support.
I have been involved with this cause now for 7 years. My first year I volunteered as a "roadie" to support the logistics of getting 2500 bike riders from San Francisco to Los Angeles.
There are currently 900,000 Americans living with HIV/AIDS,and someone new is infected every 9 1/2 minutes. We are making progress, in 2019 San Francisco saw a 13% decrease in transmission, and a historic low! I am riding so that San Francisco will be the first city in the World to end the retransmission of HIV/AIDS, and you can help us achieve that goal. While scientists continue to work for a cure, what we all can do is help solve the problem by supporting the SF AIDS Foundation's efforts to reduce transmissions and provide the necessary treatment and education that is needed to battle this disease.
Please help me achieve my goal of raising $ 3000 in donations.
Thank you for any support you can provide! -Tim
