I was incredibly fortunate the past two years to get to ride in AIDS/LifeCycle, a 545-mile bicycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. The annual ride is one of the biggest sources of funding for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and Los Angeles LGBT Center. Not only does the ride support research efforts to find a cure to HIV, it also supports those living with HIV and AIDS, provides community education and outreach, and works to decrease the stigma of living with AIDS.
The ride has been a transformational experience in my life. AIDS/LifeCycle is an affirming LGBT community on wheels, and served as an inspiration to me to become more engaged and involved in my local community. The ride was challenging physically, but it also challenged me to rethink my role in the LGBT community for the better.
Here's how you can help me this year.
I'm aiming to raise $5000 for SF AIDS Foundation and LA LGBT Center and you can donate here. Even a small donation of $5 is one small step towards my goal of $5000.
Also, please help me extend my reach by sharing about the ride on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or whatever social networks you inhabit.
Thank you for your love and support!
