Thank you for visiting my page and considering to sponsor my ride for AIDS/Lifecycle. "Ride545" is a 545 mile bike trek from San Francisco to Los Angeles which will take place in early June over a seven day period to help raise awareness and funding for HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, and education.
This will be my second year riding with Hotwheels and rasing much needed funds for those affected by HIV and I'm just as scared and excited!!
The services provided as a result of this event mean the world to those who receive them. The money that is raised from your tax-free contributions helps raise funds for the life-saving services provided by the SF AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
Here are some of the types of services that your donation can help fund:
$1,000 covers a full year of medical supply costs for 40 patients
$1,000 funds one client receiving Post Exposure Prophylaxis
$250 provides Rapid HIV Antibody tests to 20 clients
$180 provides HIV prevention counseling sessions to 20 teenagers
$150 provides comprehensive HIV/STD testing to one client
$30 covers the treatment medication for one client infected with an STD
$10 buys 114 condoms that the Health Education and Prevention Program will distribute
As you can see, a donation of any amount can have a real impact in a community, so please consider giving no matter how big or small.
This is the first time I have ever been part of a ride like this, and I am participating for the following reasons:
1) Help a great cause and support people suffering from AIDS/HIV
2) Challenge myself physically and mentally during the grueling 7-day ride down the California coast
3) Finally, develop my ability to network and fundraise with a goal to raise $5,000 before I ride in June 2018
Let’s work together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past by making a donation today!
