For several years, I have been in awe of people who have participated in this spectacular event of biking from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise money for this incredible cause. I have been encouraged to participate, but my SELF-CENTERED FEAR has kept me from doing so.
This year, a friend gently nudged me to go for it and I REGISTERED!!! The months of training and fundraising that are ahead of me seem terrifying and impossible - feelings that are familiar to individuals living with HIV/AIDS. But also... GRATITUDE and a DRIVE FOR LIVING. It is with THESE feelings that I WILL participate.
I am asking for your donations to reach my fundraising goal of $10,000. If you are unable to donate (or even if you are), please consider sharing this post. You never know who has been affected by HIV/AIDS and who WILL be affected by this cause.
All my love and gratitude,
