Thank you for joining me in this cause!
I'm preparing for a monumental journey, and I couldn’t be more excited! It’s not going to be easy, but it’s likely to be one of the most rewarding weeks I will experience in my life because of why I’m doing it, however, in order to make this journey a reality I really need your help.
The plan is that from June 2nd to June 8th I will ride my bike 545 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles to help support the life-saving services offered by the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center in the fight to end HIV/AIDS—a fatal illness that afflicts thousands of men, women, and children.
Preparing for this journey requires countless hours of training and preparation but ultimately, I’m committed to making sure that I’m ready physically and mentally. However, my journey is nothing compared to the daily battle that is being fought by those who have HIV/AIDS and I’m asking for your support to donate as generously as you possibly can.
I really want to thank you in advance for being the support that I need to cross the finish line on June 9th, so let’s work together to bring an end to HIV/AIDS.
My Personal Web Log
So much thanks! Lots of love!
I have reached my $3000 minimum fundraising goal! Through the help and support of many, I have earned my ticket to ride. But our work is not done yet. Until there is a cure for HIV/AIDS, and it becomes a thing only found in history books, your help is still greatly needed.
So, with that said, I have raised my fundraising goal to $5000. I've done this because I'm confident that together, we can hit that mark by May 2019.
We got to $3000, we can certainly raise $2000 more. Help me by making a donation today!

A little something for you!
In June of 2019, I am going to do something that I've never done before, and it completely terrifies me--a 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. I have already begun my training, and while the journey is hard I know that it's going to be awesome, and I will make wonderful memories.
I'll also be proving to myself that I can do anything I set my mind to--but I can't do it without your financial support so I'm changing it up a bit and hoping to encourage you all to help me out, while also donating to a really awesome cause.
Anyway, every donation earns your name on a special jersey that I'm going to have printed up out of my own pocket so that you can be with me the entire way.
In addition, at every mile-marker that is the dollar amount of your donation, I will throw out a special Facebook Live "Thank You!". For example, for those that donate $100, at my 100-mile marker, I will do a LIVE thank you to you through Facebook. Same with those who donate $25, or even $1.
My goal is that every person who donates on my behalf will get tons of public appreciation from yours truly, acknowledging that you are very much on this adventure with me every mile of the way, and that I could not have possibly done this without your support. Of course, there are those who would rather remain anonymous--just tag yourself anonymous when you make your donation and know that you're on my mind at those mile-markers, but I'll still do a callout to the Anonymous donors, just not by name. :)
For those that feel like they don't have enough to donate please let me reassure you that every dollar counts no matter the amount, it all counts! <3
No amount is too small, and every dollar counts--let's work together to bring an end to HIV/AIDS.
Thank you in advance for being the support that I need to cross the finish line on June 9th. <3
