About the 2017 Ride for AIDS Chicago
Choose from a two-day, 200 mile ride, or a single-day 100-mile option. The Ride for AIDS Chicago is Test Positive Aware Network's largest fundraiser and aims to raise vital unrestricted funds for TPAN and its Community Partners.
Riders completing 200 miles depart Evanston on Saturday morning, journeying into Wisconsin, along the shores of Lake Geneva and then rest for the evening at Camp Lutherdale.
While the 200-mile participants are en route, the 100-mile participants will be shuttled with their bikes and gear to Camp Lutherdale to ride on Sunday. After arriving at camp, you may opt for a refreshing hot shower or a cool dip in the lake. If the weather cooperates, we'll host a barbecue outdoors.This will be followed by an evening of star-gazing or making s'mores by the campfire. You'll sleep in one of the many cabins, waking up to a crisp Wisconsin morning and a hot breakfast awaiting you in the dining hall.
All Riders will return to Chicago on Sunday following the winding roads of southeast Wisconsin, the shaded bicycle paths of northeast Illinois, and then into the city. Upon returning, family and friends will welcome us home at the joyous Finale Festival held in Leahy Park.
In order to participate, Riders are required to make a minimum fundraising commitment of $1,000. In the event you are unable to Ride, due to injury or otherwise, you will still be required to raise a minimum of $500.
To participate as an official Crew member, it is suggested but not required, that you raise $500.
Unlike other rides of this kind, Ride for AIDS Chicago is committed to returning 100% of your pledges to the beneficiaries.
