Hello and THANK YOU in advance! This is my fifth year supporting our cause. I am excited to be coming back to the love bubble for another year. This will mark over 2725 - two thousand seven hundred twenty five - miles ridden on a bike! Yeah, right? Crazy. Crazy cool!
Riding my first year solo, making new friends and becoming a Winona Rider, and now getting to ride with a wild group of Pedal Pups. AIDS lifecycle has helped me to grow and become so much more involved in my community through their outreach and through the bonds it builds. Most importantly, it has helped me to understand how far just a few dollars can go to saving so many lives. Our 545 miles across California, from SF to LA, touches people of all races, walks and communities and benefits them in so many ways.
Whether it is free testing, therapy, housing support, medical support and program building for The Los Angeles LGBT Center or the SF AIDS foundation or growing support and acceptance through the many people we interact with. ALC is truly an amazing rescource and collection of friends riding for a better tomorrow and an end to the fear, stimga and virus.
Again, THANK YOU for your donation. Below are some suggested values and be sure to check our my AVEDA Talk on why ALC matters and our AVEDA Living Blog for World AIds Day
