Gonna Ride my Bike for an Epic Cause!
I ride for Adventure and Strength. I joined the opportunity to help my friends who benefit from the services that TPAN provides. The ride help me realize what I'm capable of.
On September 8 and 9, I will be riding with Team Fred in the 2018 Ride for AIDS Chicago. Last year, my first year, I started off taking it easy with 100 miles. This year I'm rocking your face off with 230 miles!!! We will be biking from Chicago to Michigan.

7.20: We did our first bike camping trip, Logan and I! We biked up to Illinois Beach State Park - 38 miles - camped, and biked back. This was the longest bike outing for Logan, and the first trip for me with a lot of gear.
6.30: I biked outside on a 110 degree day - 48 miles.
SOOOOO HOT!!!!! That is all :)
6.2: Training is underway! As well as a whole mess of other things going on! I've only been able to do a couple of the official training rides, but have been going the full amount each time. I also started biking to work on Tuesdays - Albany to Northbrook is a 32 miles round trip.
I've also did 38 miles for Bike the Drive last week. I didn't realize how much I would care about the landscape of the city, until I was seeing it for the first time going 15 miles an hour instead of 60. I highly reccomend everyone to do it.
4.21: "First" Day of training! I skipped the First Official Training with Ride for AIDS becuase Logan, my husband, wanted to take a big biking trip. We took the Metra from Ravenswood to Waukegan, and then biked back down. 32 miles in the books!
TPAN empowers everyone living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS to live open, healthy, and productive lives. TPAN innovates to deliver peer-led support programs and collaborative wellness services and to communicate comprehensive information, and will do so until HIV/AIDS is eradicated.
Fred Says is a nonprofit organization that offers support for HIV positive youth, and is devoted to improving and maintaining the well-being of teens. Through the help of social media, agencies, and adolescent HIV programs, they strive to reduce the stigma associated with the disease. The money that Team Fred makes goes on to help programs that share the same focus.
Thanks for taking a look at my page. Every dollar counts - Really! Whatever you want to donate is epic! I also take high fives.
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!
