Thank you for joining me in this amazing cause!
In 2018, over 3,000 Cyclists, Roadies and Virtual Cyclists participated 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. I was proud to have been one of them! Thanks in large part to the support and encouragement I received from family, friends, and all the wonderful human beings in my life! Together, as a community of cyclists and roadies, we were able to raise $16.6 Million for HIV/AIDS services!
During training in 2018, I was frequently asked, "why ride?" Which was quickly followed with "that is such a long distance on a bike". I ride because there are people in need. People who may have limited access to health insurance, people who need real education and practical awareness, and people who rely on not only the medication but the psychosocial services provided by the centers in LA and San Fran. All of these services and many more are provided as a direct result of the ride. AIDS/LifeCycle means the world to those who receive those services, and YOUR SUPPORT MEANS THE WORLD TO ME! Amid funding reductions from government and private companies, together we were able to provide much needed life saving and life sustaining services for communities in Los Angeles and San Francisco!
We’re working together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. Will you support me by making a donation today?
I will be riding for AIDS/LifeCycle in 2019! In order to be successful in this undertaking, I will need your help. There are a number of ways you can help -
- - Please donate
- - If you cannot donate, please share this link with your contacts and friends
- - Please keep checking in on this page, I will update it throughout the year as I train for 2019
- - Please join me and my cycle family, the CyclePaths, at one of our fundraising events
Together with your help, we will accomplish great things for people in need. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you for your support!

TICKET TO RIDE!!
I got my ticket to ride today! I finally crossed the $3,000 mark! It is such a great feeling. Last year, I did not have my ticket to ride until May. It feels great. Now, if would stop raining every weekend so I can get back to training...life would be great! The biggest hurdle is behind me for this year! Thank you to everyone who helped get me to my ticket to ride, could not have done it without your help!!

6 Month Mark
Wow! We are almost near the 6 month mark for the ride. This year is going by quickly. I am 25% of the way to my goal. Would you consider helping me to get to 50% by the end of 2018? It would mean so much to me, but even more to the people who get services from the LA Gay and Lesbian Center. I am going to keep training and I could use your support along the way.
