For years I've watched cycists arrive in Los Angeles or leave San Francisco on a ride of a lifetime. I have always been facinated by their relentless spirit to raise money for an amazing cause. Sharing their journey, they wholehearted dedicate their invaluable time to our communities and instill hope so that our communities may benefit from their courage to bring awareness to HIV/AIDS. I have always told myself that I wanted to join "The Ride" so that I too can raise money for the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. I'm so happy to say that I am joining AIDS/Lifecyle as a cyclist this year and I am asking for your support so that you can join me in meeting my goal of 10k.
I'll be riding along side +3k Cyclists, Roadies, and Virtual Cyclists on a 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles fom May 31st to June 6th. Sounds wild, yea?- Trust me, I'm THRILLED to finally be able to say that I am doing this!
I recently moved to Palm Springs from San Francisco where it is not only warmer, but I am closer to family. I've realized that I am blessed to have the privilage to do this while so many others do not and I have received so much LOVE and support from The Desert Roadrunners + the AIDS/LifeCycle to not only become registered, but also had a bicycle donated to me by someone who also believes in our cause so that I too may embark on this ride of a lifetime. I'm beyond grateful to do this along side my new family with The Desert Roadrunners! They have given me so much support and LOVE! We believe that we can make a difference in the lives of others by riding down our beautiful state of California on two wheels with drives in our hearts and love in our souls!
I, and countless others who seek to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past, would be forever grateful if you would help us meet my goal of 10k. Please let me know I have your support by donating to our amazing cause!
I LOVE and appreciate you! ♥
