How many years have you supported the California AIDS Ride / AIDS/Lifecycle Event? And, why do you continue to support these events?

I have been a supporter of the California AIDS Ride / AIDS/Lifecycle Event for the past 8 years. I continue my commitment because I personally lost four very close and many not so close friends to this damn disease and they ain’t coming back. My financial and emotional support to this cause and others helps me confront and deal with the daily reality that there are still folks, ones who are close and not so close friends and family of others who are still being infected and dying; with no cure in the near horizon.

The courage, stamina and enthusiasm of the many riders and support teams that make the ride to LA are something that my friends Jerriese, Michael Troy, Brian and Natalie, were they alive today, would have also wanted to take part in to continue to fight to find a cure and help spread the prevention message.”
