Why did I decide to do the ride?
For those of you that know me well, I am not the most athletic or fitness driven individual. However I am passionate about this amazing cause. As a staff member of the LA LGBT Center I have provided services for transitional aged youth experiencing homelessness, and I have seen firsthand how necessary HIV services the Center provides are needed. Through donations from amazing individuals like yourself, the Center has been able to offer our community education about HIV, Aids, and has been able to provide medical services. As a result, I want to continue fighting for causes that are close to my heart. Therefore, I pledge to train from now until June 2, 2019 to ride my bike 545 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles in seven days in honor of every donation that I receive. Every penny counts, so any donation you can contribute is appreciated.
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.
We’re working together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. Will you support me by making a donation today?
