I was on Instagram one day, and I saw a post from an artist from L.A. This post wasn't about the art she usually posts. It was about this epic bike ride she had just completed, cycling all the way from San Francisco to Los Angeles. I thought to myself, "Could I do that?" After following the links in her post, I saw that this ride was the AIDS/LifeCycle, and it benefitted organizations serving people affected by HIV/AIDS, and I thought, "I have to do this."
I choose to ride for the friends that I've lost to HIV/AIDS, the many more friends living with HIV, the healthcare professionals and social workers who work to help others live. I choose to ride, because I want to know how I will personally handle the challenge of such a long ride. Most of all, I choose to ride, because in doing so, money and awareness will be raised to end the stigma and the struggle.
The funds raised from AIDS/LifeCycle provide life saving, life-enhancing support to many. With future funding uncertain, raising funds and awareness seems necessary.
Please, join me in this cause!
June 3rd - June 9th, 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, I’ll be one of them!
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?
