Hey Friends!  Check this out!

Wandering around the Nevada desert last summer, I was given a charge to do something inspiring, audacious and compassionate for my local community in 2013.

How am I turning that call in to action?  After 12 years off the road, I'm getting back on the bike in support of the SF AIDS Foundation!

What am I doing?: I'm riding a bike 545 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles along with over 2000 other cyclists as part of the AIDS/Lifecyle 12 team.

What's my goal?: To raise a minimum of $10,000.  As of 3/4/2013, that first goal has been bested! Now we're on our way to $20K!  QUACK!

How committed to this am I?: I'm SUPER fortunate to be able to personally contribute the entire minimum fundraising requirement of $3000, which has been graciously matched 100% by the Bank of America Foundation. So we're officially on the backside of the challenge!!

When is it?:  June 2-8 2013.

Why:  To make a world of difference in the lives of people living with HIV and AIDS.  I ride for my friends and loved ones who are living with HIV and for those who have lost their lives to this pandemic.

How can you help?:  Help me support AIDS/LifeCycle by giving what you can.  Your donation is fully tax deductible.  We'll keep riding until AIDS and HIV are a thing of the past.  I'm happy to be part of such an inspiring event, supported by fantastic people.  I hope that you'll share in the excitement, challenge and fun by making a contribution in support of the SF AIDS Foundation.

AIDS/LifeCycle is co-produced by the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center and is designed to advance their shared interests to end the pandemic and human suffering caused by AIDS.

The goals of AIDS/LifeCycle are to:

  1. Raise funds to support the HIV/AIDS services of the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center and the San Francisco AIDS Foundation;
  2. Increase awareness and knowledge about the services and programs offered by the benefiting organizations;
  3. Increase awareness and knowledge about HIV/AIDS among participants, their donors and the general public;
  4. Increase AIDS activism and volunteerism among the participant and donor communities, inspiring them to become ambassadors in the fight against AIDS;
  5. Provide a positive, life-affirming experience for people affected and infected by HIV;
  6. Contribute to an increased understanding of the disproportionate impact HIV has had on the GLBT communities in SF and LA;
  7. Encourage an environment of dignity and improved quality of life for those affected by HIV and AIDS.
Much Love.  Many Quacks!
