Gonna Ride my Bike for an Epic Cause!
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.
Training will be starting soon, and I'll keep you posted.
My goals for this trip:
Lose a little weight
Continue to figure out how to change a tire
Make new friends
Raise money for two organizations - TPAN and Fred Says
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.
In the coming weeks, I'll also be making a set of buttons for bike enthousiasts, and those who like buttons, with each selling for $2. (Proceeds coming back to Ride for AIDS of course)
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!
