In June, 2018, I will ride in AIDS/LifeCycle, pedaling my beloved bicycle more than 550 miles over just 7 days from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise critical funding for the fight against AIDS & HIV. Amber will be a "Roadie", volunteering all week helping the riders as a bike tech - fixing flats, etc. and keeping the machine rolling down the coast to LA.
We need co-heroes and sheroes right now.
Some numbers for you:
- Over 35,000,000 (35 MILLION!) people have died from AIDS on our planet.
- Over 1,300,000 people in the United States are HIV+, and one in seven don’t even know it.
- It’s estimated that up to 1 in 5 trans women are HIV+.
- The Trump administration is dramatically reducing AIDS/HIV programs and support.
This senseless epidemic is not over until we are down to zero new infections and zero deaths.
This is not just MY fight, it is OUR fight. HIV does not care about your sexual preference, gender, race, age, or anything else. It is our obligation to eradicate this disease so our children will not have to cope with it like we did and do.
As a fellow human being, I’ve reached the conclusion that doing good in the world is what life is all about and nothing feels as good as helping. This is why I support and ride AIDS/LifeCycle, as a cyclist as well as a Training Ride Leader (TRL) - and that's why Amber is a rockin' Roadie.
I’ve also found that the people who make the biggest impact on the world set big, hairy, audacious goals.
Our goal is to END AIDS.
Please follow our lead as we accomplish that goal of ending AIDS & HIV by clicking the orange “Donate Now” button above. Take three minutes and be a (s)hero with us today. Any amount will help us reach the goal, and you can spread your support over 10 months.
Your choice - radically change the world for our children or buy a latte’ and a biscuit.
Amber & I, our family, our friends, and the entire world thank you for your kindness, compassion and generosity. You are truly saving lives.
Your tax-deductible support will go to the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center, where they will directly impact the AIDS/HIV pandemic by providing life saving support to those living with HIV/AIDS and those at risk for contracting it.
This is how we do it.
Thank you, fellow (s)hero.
