Join me in the fight to End AIDS.
From June 2-8, 2013, I'm bicycling in AIDS/LifeCycle. It's a 7-day, 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to make a world of difference in the lives of people living with HIV and AIDS. I am preparing for this beginning September 2012 and will be ready. I will ride at least 100 miles a week for 25 weeks and often I will ride a lot more.

I can do this.
I have had allergies and asthma since childhood and in the last seven years they've become severe. My allergies range from mundane to life altering. In addition to dust, mold and grasses, I'm also allergic to common foods such as wheat, nuts, peanuts and corn. Like many chronic asthmatics I also have gastro-esophagal reflux. I have to be careful of what I eat and what I touch. There are days when I can't breathe at all and others when it's simply a chore. I can choose to let all this control my life but I refuse.

I will get better and I'm doing this to prove it to myself.
Together we can help other people get the help they need.

I've committed to raise a minimum of $10,000. I need you to do two things: donate and spread the word.

I am very lucky to have incredible friends and excellent doctors, not everyone gets the support and care they need. Your donation directly funds two organizations so they can continue offering valuable services to help more people get better.

I believe in the importance of community health centers.

Since 1971 the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center has been building the health, advocating for the rights and enriching the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people.

The L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center provides a broad array of services for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community, welcoming nearly a quarter-million client visits from ethnically diverse youth and adults each year.

Through its Jeffrey Goodman Special Care Clinic and on-site pharmacy, the Center offers free and low-cost health, mental healthHIV/AIDS medical care and HIV/STD testing and prevention

The Center also offers legal, social, cultural, and educational services, with unique programs for seniorsfamilies and youth, including a 24-bed transitional living program for homeless youth.

Through education, advocacy and direct services for prevention and care, The San Francisco AIDS Foundation is confronting HIV in communities most vulnerable to the disease. Established in 1982, their mission is the radical reduction of new infections in San Francisco.
