Help Me Make My Difference.
I just raised my goal to $10,000.
From July 13 - 16, 2017 I will be participating on the 15th Anniversary Red Ribbon Ride. Red Ribbon Ride is a 4 day, 300 mile bicycle ride that raises vital funds for eight HIV/AIDS service organizations in Minnesota; providing treatment, prevention and awareness.
I need your help to reach my goal. I hope I can count on you to support me on my journey of hope for thousands of Minnesotans with HIV/AIDS and those at risk of infection.
December 1, 2016 marks the 28th World AIDS Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness about HIV/AIDS and mourning those we lost to the disease.
The Talmud teaches us that when we lose just one person, it is considered that the entire world has been destroyed. So, in the 35 years since AIDS was first observed in the United States, we have seen the world destroyed over a million times. A million souls gone – which of them would have cured cancer, painted a masterpiece, or solved any of the world’s seemingly intractable problems?
Today, we mourn our losses, and we recommit ourselves to fighting AIDS, fighting stigma and discrimination against those infected and affected, and ultimately, to finding a cure.
Today, I repeat what I said last year, and the year before, and the year before that– all I want is a cure and my friends back.
Thank you for your support!
