Fom May 31st to June 6th, I will come back to ride 545 miles in an effort to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. I'm very excited (and only slightly scared) for this physical endeavour. I'm humbled to be a part of improving lives by making these services possible for so many people.
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. I have seen too many family and friends pass on as a result of AIDS. I am working to save lives for so many in their memory and honor.
Your gift(s) to the Los Angeles LGBT Center help us provide the following essential services for prevention and care. Government funding never covers all the costs of expensive HIV/AIDS care. Your support bridges the gap and provides us the resources to expand critical services and fully serve those in need.
