From June 2nd to June 8th, over 3,000 badass humans 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 the SF AIDS Foundation and the LA LGBT Center.
This year, I’ll be one of them.
Last year I watched my boyfriend gear up to join the ALC pack and make the trek from SF to LA. While sitting at the opening ceremonies in SF, I knew right then and there that I would be joining them next year. There was something so special about the energy in that room-- it was the most palpable sense of love. The second Austin returned to Los Angeles and I greeted him at the finish line, I could see that the special energy I noticed 6 days earlier had not disappeared-- even after the heat, the hills, and the 545+ miles ridden.
There are still far too many of our brothers and sisters sick and unable to live the lives they deserve to live, so I am doing this for them. It is my duty as a man with an able, healthy body to use my privilege to make an impact. In this case, that means raising money and challenging myself and support an invaluable cause.
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 please support me by making a donation today?
