For the first time, this coming June 2-8, I am participating in the AIDS/LifeCycle, a 545-mile ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. I, along with 3,000 other cyclists, roadies and virtual cyclists will spend 7-days on the road NOT staying in 5-star hotels along the way - can you believe it?! I was compelled to participate not only for the physical and mental challenge, but also to raise funds for life-saving services offered by the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. None of this money goes towards Four Seasons Hotel accommodations, dinners at Mastro's or my chardonnay budget - I swear! You'll truly be making a difference in someone's life by donating today! Aloha and Mahalo!
