I heard about this benefit ride a few weeks ago, it crossed my mind that it would be fun to do but it sounded like too much work.
. . . still curious, I read into it a bit more and was completely fascinated by the participants stories and all they had accomplished. I put a bit more thought into actually doing the ride and I still wasn't exactly sure. A few days after I spoke to a few friends and they told me to not think so much about it and just do it! (which is usually my problem).
I thought to myself, If I didn't at least try I would be selling myself short. I would be doing what I love and helping others in the process, I went home that night and registered.
The AIDS/LifeCycle is a 545 mile bicycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Its purpose is to raises money and awareness for the HIV and AIDS services of the LA Gay and Lesbian Center and The San Francisco AIDS Foundation. This is the 9th year of the ALC, and there are no signs of slowing down.
My goal is to raise 3,000.00 dollars and dedicate the next three months of my life to this incredible event. I've set this goal for myself and I have every intention of making it happen, but I wont be able to do this without your support and contributions. I would be entirely grateful if you could please take a moment and make a donation in my name. Every bit counts and every cent will make a difference, not only for me but for the millions living with HIV and AIDS.

It’s easy to think that HIV/AIDS is no longer a problem.
In California alone there are 151,000 people living with HIV. Nationally, 70 percent of all new infections occur in communities of color and people under the age of 25 are increasingly affected.
As the number of people living with HIV increases, so does the need for the services provided by the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center, their concern is providing critical services to people living with HIV and AIDS. Your support and commitment to this event is pivotal to our success.
Your participation and the monies you raise will allow us to provide these critical services.
