This will be my fifth year participating in AIDS/Lifecycle, an event that has changed my life.
You see, it's more than just a fundraiser.
It's a community of people who believe that change is possible when we come together for the greater good.
For some, it's about embracing and living their truth to end stigma and change minds and hearts.
For others, it's about seeking human connection in a world that can be very lonely and isolating.
For me, it's about honoring those who came before us, for those we lost to this disease, and riding for those who can't.
Yes, we raise a ton of money to end AIDS. But it's bigger than that.
The ride is about love, family, acceptance, and lifting each other up.
This past year, I had the unique opportunity to tell my story through another rider.
His story is my story. And the story of so many others.
Please watch this short film and if it moves you, consider donating generously.
Together, we can make a difference.
