Hi Friends and Family,
WELCOME to the Marin Marauder's Team page. This is our 3rd year as an official team for the AIDS/LIFECYCLE. We are a team of cyclists and roadies raising awareness and money to fight HIV/AIDS in partnership with the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and Los Angeles LGBT Center.
There are no requirements to be a Marin Marauder. We are a friendly, social and supportive group who just love to ride bikes.
Last year, we set our goal at $200,000. With the generosity of our family, friends and community, we blew past our goal and raised over $229,000. In doing so, we were the fifth highest fundraising team in the large team category!! WOOOOOOOW Our goal this year is again $200,000. We are committed to help fight the battle against HIV/AIDS.
Here is just some of the ways that donations go into action:
$10,000 helps provide counseling services for more than 250 clients.
$5,000 helps keep the HIV testing RV rolling for one year.
$2,500 helps four HIV-positive people receive stable housing for one month.
$1,000 helps provide two Community Education Forums where 150 individuals can learn more about HIV.
$250 helps provide ten rapid HIV antibody tests at a testing site.
$175 helps provide case management for 15 HIV-positive clients who are homeless.
$150 helps provide 1,000 syringes through the street-based Syringe Access Services.
$100 helps provide the travel cost for a Treatment Advocacy Coordinator to attend the medical appointments of 25 clients, provide moral support, and help clients advocate for themselves.
$25 helps a financial benefits counselor assist one person in navigating the private and public benefits systems.
$10 helps provide 143 condoms to the SFAF and LA LGBT Center's service sites.
