Let's Do This!
From June 2nd - June 8th 2019, I'm once again joining over 3,000 Cyclists and Road Crew in AIDS/LifeCycle, a 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise funds for the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
It's an incredible experience, significant commitment and audacious physical and emotional challenge -- and benefits so many people! The services provided as a result of this Ride mean the world to those who receive them, and your support means the world to me. In previous years we've managed to raise over $16 million and I intend to ensure that we meet and exceed that amount this year.
We’re working together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. Please support me by making a donation today!
My Personal Web Log
We're off soon!
It's Friday evening before tomorrow's bike registration and Sunday's pre-dawn ride-out. I am awed and humbled at my donors' generosity and belief in me-- your words of encouragement will stay in my heart over the next week. Surpassing my fundraising goal by over $1K fills me with gratitude. I ride for those we've lost, for those living with HIV/AIDS, for those at risk, and for us all.
My previous experience on this ride tells me that I'll laugh, cry, exult, hurt, feel defeated, feel proud, feel grateful, feel a lot of love. Can't wait!!

I'm so awed, humbled and grateful to all who have contributed to support my ride! It's getting tougher-- long hilly rides on both weekend days plus weekday gym workouts when possible-- but I'm so inspired by everyone's generosity, it keeps me going. Thanks everyone!!!
