From June 2-8, 2013, I'm bicycling in AIDS/LifeCycle!!! It's a 7-day, 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to make a world of difference in the lives of people living with HIV and AIDS.I can really use all the positive energy and support that everyone can give me. My goal is to raise a minimum of $10,000 towards this great cause!

If you or someone you know has been affected by this disease, please pass the word along to make a donation in honor of a loved one still battling or for those who have lost theirs. Together we can make a difference! When we come together we are mighter and stronger than one! Help me support AIDS/LifeCycle by giving what you can. We'll keep riding until AIDS and HIV are a thing of the past.
