After years of watching my friends do the ride and hearing about their amazing experience, I am finally signed up!
June 4th - June 10th, over 3,000 Cyclists, Roadies and Virtual Cyclists will be participating 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. This year, and for the 1st time, I will be one of them!
I have many people in my life who have been affected by this disease in many ways, and have heard stories about the very early days when their friends were being diagnosed and there was simply little that could be done to help them. I am riding because I am grateful to be a part of this LGBT community, and because I feel fortunate to have had great doctors, mentors and teachers whose stories of pain and healing surrounding HIV/Aids inspire me. I am also excited to be sharing this ride with my husband Jay Jeffers (also riding for the 1st time -- GO JAY!) We have blessed lives and this is a just small way to show our gratitude and thanks. The services provided as a result of this event mean the world to those who receive them, and your support means the world to me/us.
Jay and I are riding together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. I have already raised a hefty $25K for my first ride, so the number now jumps to $30K.
Will you support me by making a donation today?
