On June 3rd - June 9th, over 3,000 Cyclists, Roadies and Virtual Cyclists will be participating 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.
The services provided as a result of this event mean the world to those who receive them, and your support means the world to me because it isn’t just affecting the LGBTQ community; it is life threatening to all of us!
We're working together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. Will you please support me by making a donation today?
Just clicking to check out this event already means so much! Thank You for Your On-Going Support in this and my other CrAzY AdVeNtUrEs!
I realize that none of the people I know are in a position to donate thousands of dollars but you all should be aware that no donation is too small not to make a measurable contribution to the fight against HIV and AIDS. So please give what you can and help make a difference.
