I turned fifty last May. It is a milestone that I thought I would never reach when I tested positive for HIV in 1991 (if this is news to you, and you want to know the story, read this blog entry.) It was sometimes scary getting here, but here I am and very healthy to boot! To celebrate, I've set myself a very big goal: raising $25,000 for the ride this year, $500 for each year I've been alive.
Although meeting big fundraising goals and doing rides like BRAKING AIDS™ Ride is hard, it's nothing compared to the daily struggle that people living with HIV face each day, especially when they lack a home and adequate support. Your donation will providing housing, medical and mental health services, and advocacy on behalf of people living with HIV/AIDS. It is fully tax-deductible. So please support my ride and make a donation here. Thank you!
