Thank you for joining me in this cause!
As you may know my company, Gilead Sciences, is committed to ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic by developing improved treatments, improving patient access to care globally, and by finding a cure. So it only makes sense that we would partner with the AIDS Ride.
The annual AidsRide is a significant fundraiser for the agencies that host it and with the COVID-19 pandemic it was not possible for us to ride together in 2020. In 2021, to ensure participants can be safe, we will be riding together, virtually and seek to ride one mile for every person in the US living with HIV - that's 1,200,000 miles.
Those miles are important, but they are merely symbolic. The fundraising we do along the way will go to support the San Francisco Aids Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center - two agencies at the forefront of the fight to end HIV/AIDS. Our goal is to raise over $5M to support these agencies, and I've personally committed to $2,500 of that.
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.
We’re working together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. Will you support me by making a donation today?
