come down the coast with me...
after running the aids marathon 20 years ago... this ride was a long time coming. back in dallas, where my family first came and settled in the states, i met a boy that changed my life. he became my older brother, watching over me as i was coming to conclusions about my own sexuality. but in 1991, warren passed away; and after losing 3 of my closest friends over the years, i began to grasp the crisis that is this disease.
this ride is an important one. it brings together an amazing group of people from all backgrounds, to raise awareness and funds to battle and defeat HIV.
my history in this fight has been mostly in california. in los angeles, i volunteered as a driver with god's love we deliver: an amazing organization that donates and delivers food for those in need. and in san francisco, i was an hiv testing counselor volunteer seeing clients at magnet: a free clinic in the heart of the castro.
from June 2nd to June 8th, more than 3,000 cyclists, roadies and virtual cyclists will be participating in the AIDS/LifeCycle... a week long 545-mile bike ride from san francisco to los angeles to raise $$$$$ for the life-saving services offered by the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
THIS YEAR... I'LL BE ONE OF THEM! and AND YOUR SUPPORT MEANS EVERYTHING.
the services provided as a result of this event mean the world to those who receive and benefit from them, so please make a donation that you would take pride in. we are all working together to make sure HIV/AIDS is a thing of the past.
