June 2 - June 8, 2019 will be MY 9th YEAR participating in AIDS Lifecycle riding 545 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise money to end AIDS on our planet! Please join me and help make this another memorable year!
The AIDS Lifecycle bike ride means the everything to those who receive education, HIV testing, treatment and support as a result of this event, and your support means the world to me! Last year, AIDS Lifecycle raised over $15 million for the SF AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. This ride is a huge endeavor involving several thousand participants to make it successful benefitting programs in San Francisco, Los Angeles, nationally and worldwide.

For me, it means riding my bike for thousands and thousands of miles from now until June 2018. It means climbing mountains, blazing hot sun and freezing cold wind. It means blood, sweat, and likely a few tears. It means time away from my family. It means money and time invested in equipment, time and training. All of this, leading up to an incredible 7 day adventure riding my bike from San Francisco to Los Angeles to support an incredibly important cause.
I need your help. You make this happen. I have set a goal of $10,500 in sponsorships to achieve between now and June 2018. You will be able to watch my progress, to show love on defeated days and to cheer me on both virtually and physically on the ride itself. I implore you to help me raise this $10,500 to show your support of me, of this cause and to be a community member that stands with me to make big changes in our small world.
Can you support me? I am rider # 1279 and every donation no matter how much - counts! If you then tell your friends and they donate, it can start to build momentum. Until it’s racing like me on a downhill stretch.
THANK YOU for your support, generosity, and friendship. Together, we can do so much! Your support will be the power in my legs and the air in my lungs.
With love and gratitude,
