I am riding for those who didn't survive. Even though I wasn't around for the worst of it I have lost friends due to complications from HIV/AIDS. I ride in their honor.
June 2nd - June 8th, over 3,000 Cyclists, Roadies and Virtual Cyclists 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 San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. This year, I'll be one of them!
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. These organizations are saving lives.
We're working together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. Will you support me by making a donation today?
