Murph's Plea for Support
I am still very proud of what I accomplished in 2016 & 2017. I rode every mile of the 200 miles the last 2 years to earn your donations and I am pleased to announce on September 8th and 9th 2018 I will do it again. I will be joining hundreds of other individuals riding 100 or 200 or even the anniversary 230 miles in support of the 2018 Ride for AIDS Chicago. I am training hard to do the full 200 miles.
In 2015 I became part of the ride as a crew member threw a friend and I knew nothing of what TPAN was or what they did. 2 years later I believe so much I joined the board of directors and am now proudly Vice Chairman of TPAN. I believe so much in what you do. In this political environment we now more than ever we need your donations.
My company, Hill-Rom, is proudly one of the many companies sponsoring this event. As a Healthcare company we understand the need for education and prevention. The Charities associated with this event provide educational counseling, support, needle exchanges, access to medication, and countless other services to those living with HIV or at risk to contracting HIV in our very community.
I'm participating in this event to raise vital funds to support HIV services in the community. In addition, through my participation, and with your support we will continue to raise awareness around HIV in an effort to reduce the debilitating effects of shame and stigma associated with HIV/AIDS.
The months of training and preparing for this Ride is nothing compared to what people living with HIV go through on a daily basis. I ride to represent my family, my friends, and my company as one of the sponsors. I dedicate my ride this year to those friends of mine who live with HIV and I proudly call you my friends.
Thank you for supporting my efforts. Please donate and/or join me on the ride. All are welcome.
Our goal for this year is to reach $600k in fundraising! Every one of those dollars goes a long way. In 2017 TPAN provided 992 Chicagoans with compassionate, individualized care and services. Imagine what your participation will help TPAN achieve for 2018. $50 alone, covers the cost of 1 two-hour session with a licensed therapist.
We all have to start somewhere!
