I want to express my sincerest, heartfelt thanks for your support of me riding AIDS/LifeCycle 2017 and 2018! While 2018 was a difficult year to prepare for (I only had about 225 training miles in for a 545 mile ride because of work, moving from Denver to Phoenix [side note: why do I move every 2 to 3 years?!], starting a new job, and trying to do multiple people's job for a bit), I made it through and had another amazing week on the ride. Your non-stop support, as well as the community and Love Bubble that formed within a few short few hours of Day 0 starting, helped propel me across the finish line on Day 7 in Los Angeles.
More importantly, your financial support contributed more than $10,500 over two years to support people living with HIV/AIDS and to fund research to rid the world of HIV/AIDS (2017: $5,423; 2018: $5,185), and contributed to Team PwC raising nearly $440k this past year. In 2018 alone, the AIDS/LifeCycle community raised an incredible, record-breaking $16.695 MILLION!!
Here are some fun facts from Team PwC in 2018:
- 100 team members (82 cyclists, 16 roadies, and 2 virtual cyclists)
- $439,750 raised in 2018
- 3,396 donations from 3,124 unique donors (yup, you can donate more than once!)
- $884,055 raised in the three years of Team PwC's participation with ALC
With the Arizona desert summer coming to an end and temperatures beginning to cool down, it's time to get back in the swing of things for AID/LifeCycle 2019. Yes, I'm riding again for year three, and I would love nothing more than for you to join me on this journey again.
HIV and AIDS doesn't see gender, race, sexual orientation, or any other factor; it impacts us all in one way or another. So, I ask you to consider supporting me again to reach my 2019 goal of $10,000.
Thank you for once again considering joining and supporting me on this journey. Please drop me a message, email, text, or call to ask about the week of the ride, to hear stories, or just to ask questions. And, please click here if you are willing to share a story about how you've been impacted by HIV/AIDS; you can remain anonymous.
