Thank you for making it to my page. This upcoming year, Nate and I will be participating in the AIDS/Lifecycle; a charity bike ride benefitting the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. For sure, it will require endurance and determination to make it all the way down the coast of California from San Francisco to LA, but it’s for a great cause!
I’ve always wanted to participate in this event to contribute to these great organizations. Both provide HIV prevention and treatment services to those in need, including those in the LGBTQ+ community. It is my hope that, by raising awareness for HIV treatment, prevention, and research, we can make HIV a thing of the past.
So please help me in this cause by making a donation today! I would greatly appreciate it!
From May 31st to June 6th, over 3,000 Cyclists, Rodies and Virtual Cyclists will be participating in AIDS/LifeCycle, a 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise funds for the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. This year, I’ll be one of them!
The services provided as a result of this event mean so much for the ones receiving them. In the US alone there are over a million people living with an HIV+ status and many still contracting the disease without even knowing it. One way we can help is through educating people on safe sex practices and encouraging people to get tested regularly and knowing their status!
A $25 DONATION provides a Rapid HIV Antibody test at Magnet (a free community clinic located in the heart of San Francisco's Castro's district)! Tragically over 75% of the HIV+ people in the US are living at or below the poverty line making access to life-saving medication near impossible.
A $125 DONATION can provide all the resources for one patient visit to Magnet. Another constant struggle for those affected is the horrible stigma that surrounds the disease and that we as a society perpetuate. Let's spread facts, not fear!
A $500 DONATION will provide medical benefit counseling for 15 people which will allow them to obtain perscription drug assistance.
A $625 DONATION can provie a safe and stable housing situation for one HIV+ person for an entire month thanks to a partnership between the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the San Francisco Department of Public Health.
A $1,000 DONATION can put on two Stop AIDS Community Education Forums to help educate the masses about HIV/AIDS.
We’re working together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. Will you support me by making a donation today?
