Six years ago I took on a momental challenge, to train to ride my bike from San Francisco to Los Angeles to help end AIDS. With the support of my friends and family I overcame that challenge and successfully raised thousands of dollars and rode the 545 miles to LA. Every Mile. And since then I've made that journney 2 more times, raising over $21,000 in total.
This year I am taking on a similar challenge… 6 years later and after being off the bike for 6 months, I am kicking off my effort to train for AIDS/LifeCycle 2017 and to raise $10,000 to help end AIDS. The challenge ahead is daunting, especially in the cold, rainy Seattle climate, but I’m up for it, and I need your support!
June 4th - June 10th I will ride my bike 545 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles to support the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center, in the fight to end HIV/AIDS.
For those of you in Australia or Seattle, our efforts in SF and LA will also benefit your communities, as we prove in SF and LA that HIV transmission can indeed be stopped.
Preparing for this journey will require countless hours of training and preparation, and I’ve committed my time to make sure that I’m ready. This year, I’ve also committed to raising $10,000 before I ride. For this, I need you to join me in my commitment to help end HIV/AIDS. This amount goes far beyond the minimum required to ride, because I feel the need to do everything I can to help end this disease. $10,000 will make a world of difference for the organizations benefitting from this ride, and the clients they serve. So, I’m asking you to donate as generously as you possibly can (and to help spread the word about this cause).
To the people who rely on these services to survive, every dollar counts, and every dollar brings me one step closer to hitting my goal.
Thank you for making this personal goal a reality for me and for being the support that I need to cross the finish line on June 10th. Together, we will make a difference.
All the best,
