In just 2 weeks I’m riding my bike 550 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise critical funds for the fight against HIV/AIDS. I’m working as hard as I ever have to prepare. Tonight @helloevelina and I chased the sun up to the Hollywood sign.
I’m beyond grateful to everyone who’s joined me on this journey. 🙏 I’m sooo close to my fundraising goal, but not there yet. I’m dedicating the next $1k raised to all those who quietly, selflessly volunteer their time to improve the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS.
In the late-90s I was in middle school in Oklahoma City. And my mom would routinely cook and deliver meals for homebound people, including many young men without much family support dying of AIDS. I sometimes helped her deliver the meals and saw the humanity behind the “gay plague.” In Oklahoma at least, there was a small band of moms stepping in to support my community. It so easily could have been me in need of those meals and community.
The donations you make fund similarly powerful programs for those who need them most. Can you spare $20? ✨Fundraising link in bio✨
