It is a whole new world we are living in. We will get through this pandemic, and learn some important lessons about giving, about patient, community, the resiliency of the human spirit, and not to wax too philosophical, but tolerance, understanding and kindness are lessons I can learn more about, so I am finding gratitude in this difficult time.
There are still many people in need, some in even greater need, given the current situation. The Los Angeles LGBT Center has adapted as the needs of our community change and grow. Our communities still need the critical services the Center provides, and it needs our support.
MY 545 is a choose your own challenge to support your fundraising efforts for AIDS/LifeCycle! I personally have committed to doing a combination of riding 545 miles and allowing some of those miles to be counted as pushups by May 30th, 2020.
We may not be able to be physically together this June, but that doesn’t mean we plan to stop moving our bodies or slow our fundraising efforts. I am very fortunate and am going to be contributing $1 for every mile and/or pushup, and I invite you to match any of those miles with your own funds, if you are able. In these uncertain times, I understand that we are holding onto our funds, unsure what tomorrow, next month or next year will bring. The people who benefit from the services of the Center still have needs and so I hope you will join in MY545 by making even a small gift today.
