I am about to embark on a journey of a lifetime…but I can’t do it alone. Join with me in this fight, and let's change our future TOGETHER!
This year will be my FOURTH year with Team Goodisness and my first year as a virtual cyclist. I spent my first year as a massage therapist. I was truly in awe as I served--seeing so many come together, united for the cause. After riding two years, I felt myself pulled deeper and deeper into the need to help others. My passion has grown immensely. Why ALC? Well, like many, I have a personal story and lost someone very dear to me. HIV/AIDS knows no prejudice or boundaries. It can affect all ages, genders, races, creeds, orientations...from ALL walks of life--at any time. Everyone deserves the opportunity to live their life healthy, happy, content, and productive. I myself hope I leave kind footprints wherever I tread. I am older and (hopefully) wiser. I lived much of my life just coasting along. Not anymore. I want to make a difference with the years I have left here...
I AM RIDING so that others may be:
*healthy--get the meds they need, and stability in life
*tested to know their status
*born free of the virus
*educated about HIV prevention
Please join me--I receive nothing. Your gift goes directly to the organization. It can be spread out over 10 months time automatically and of course is tax deductible. It only takes a moment--click that donate box, give what you can. Every dollar helps. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!
