This summer I'm riding my bike 545 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles as a personal challenge and to raise much needed money for the SF AIDS Foundation and the LA LGBT Center
Even though there have been achievements in the treatment and prevention of HIV/AIDS we have a long way to go with research to be conducted, stigma to be erased, policies to be enacted and funds to be raised.
That's why I'm riding and that's where you come in. Please consider supporting me as I ride June 2 through June 8 to challenge myself and to honor every one of our brothers and sisters affected by HIV/AIDS.
AIDS/LifeCycle raises funds for HIV/AIDS-related services and brings to light the fact that HIV/AIDS is still a devastating disease in our society. Please consider a tax deductible donation today to support the life saving prevention and care services of San Francisco AIDS Foundation the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
San Francisco AIDS Foundation programs are innovative, person first and focus on harm reduction. They are proving to be a model and are being emulated by centers around the country and world. Learn more about these services here: http://sfaf.org/client-services/
The Los Angeles LGBT Center provides services for more LGBT people than any other organization in the world, offering programs, services, and global advocacy that span four broad categories: Health, Social Services and Housing, Culture and Education, Leadership and Advocacy. Learn more about the Center here: https://lalgbtcenter.org/
I'm riding so that some day we won't have to.
