My name's Brent and I'd like to invite you to join me an awesome and impactful journey. On June 2nd, I'll embark on a week-long pedal from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise money, awarenes, and empowerment in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
A bit about Brent
Proudly born and bred in Houston, TX, this tumbleweed set down roots in Denver in 2015 after graduating from the University of Texas in 2013 (Hook em Horns). Denver quickly became home with all the opportunity for outdoor adventure including hiking, snowboading, climbing, and most importantly cycling. Cycling has been a passion of mine since college, where I started riding and wrenching on bikes. That love of being in the sadle led me to an amazing organization called Texas 4000.
T4K was a charity bike ride from Austin to Anchorage in the fight agaisnt cancer. Everything about that incredible journey was life-changing and lit a fire in me. Raising awareness, educating about prevention, inspiring hope, pedaling every day and enduring the physical pain that those affected by disease feel.
Six years later, with the help of my amazing boyfriend Kyle, who I couldn't do this without by my side, I've found a similarly amazing organization hosting a similar ride, but this time in support of a cause that hits a little closer to home. As an out and proud gay man, Kyle and I may not have experienced HIV personally, but we have unfortunately seen the effects of HIV on our community. However, we've also seen how treatable and preventable it is with a little education and research. We've come so far in the past 30 years, far enough to put a cure in sight. And that's where you come in.
Your donation not only helps me reach my fundraising goal so that I can partricipate in the ride that empowers thousands, but every dollar goes towards meaningful programs that help fight HIV/AIDS. From treatment, testing, and prevention to education and counseling, funds raised here make meaningful change for real individulas fighting this disease.
June 2nd - June 8th, over 3,000 Cyclists, Roadies 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, Kyle and I will be riding together in this amazing ride and we need your help to get there. We have 4 months to reach our individual goals of $5000 each, so please donate at the top of the page! And thank you for making a difference.
