I'M RIDING FOR THE 8TH YEAR AS WE WORK TO END HIV/AIDS
From June 4 to 10, I'll be bicycling in AIDS/LifeCycle. This is 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'll be training and fund raising between now and June. Those of you who have contributed in the past, thank you so very much. I hope you will join me again this year along with those for whom this is their first time donating and riding with me (in a virtual sort of way). Each of you will be part of something truly incredible and life saving for those who struggle with HIV/AIDS. You will be helping the San Francisco AIDS Foundation in their efforts aimed at HIV/AIDS prevention among all vulnerable populations.
It is a great honor to ride with so many folks devoting their hearts, souls physical efforts to a cause that is so much bigger than any individual or team of riders. People choose to participate in AIDS/LifeCycle for a number of reasons, but in the end we are all united by the single goal of ending HIV/AIDS permanently. The SF AIDS Foundation is working to make San Francisco the first city in the world where there are no new HIV infections. Your donation will help make that audacious goal possible.
Last year i raised $38,166 and hope to raise at least $40,000 this year. Please contribute as much as you can, as often as you can, and together we are a force for good!
One of the training groups I ride with on Saturdays is known as "Team Edna." Edna was a 13 time AIDS LifeCycle participant who died of a cardiac arrenst on the ride three years ago. I, and so many others, who knew her were blessed by her positive, outgoing, enthusiastic spirit and we do our best to honor her memory by keeping her cheerful spirit alive. She rode to end HIV AIDS and so do we.
Love and hugz,
