This year has been tough hasn't it? From Covid to the Election and having our families (both chosen and blood) being separated from us and many of us losing our jobs has made it hard. I'll be honest depression got to me hard and as such priorities changed and things I loved didn't bring me as much joy, like cycling. It took a bit but I knew getting back in the saddle and doing the two things I love would help. I may not be able to ride with my team/family the Pedal Pups right now but I can still cycle and by doing so I can help volunteer and fundraise for the amazing cause that is AIDS/LifeCycle and through them the SF AIDS Foundation and the LA LGBT Center.
Cyclists will be participating in TogetherRide to collectively ride 1 MILLION miles by June and most importantly to raise funds for the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. This year, I'll be one of them!
The services provided as a result of this event mean the world to those who receive them, and your support means the world to me. As a gay male born in 1993, I never had to witness and go through the trauma of the AIDS crisis. Being able to participate in the AIDS/LifeCycle allows me to honor my LGBT elders and to help bring new infections to zero! A new campaign in California called "Getting to Zero" is hoping to make California the first state with zero new infections by the year 2020 through new medications and education. I look forward to sharing this amazing journey with each and every one of you.
