This will be my 14th HIV/AIDS fund-raising ride over the course of 20 years.
I've loss countless friends to the virus, some of whom I still miss very much. I use my time on the ride to remember them and their lives cut short.
Doing the ride is also my way to give back to The Center, which has been there for me in the past when I needed the services they've offered. I believe that The Center is an integral resource for fostering healthy members of our community.
I also ride for a selfish reason. I don't think about it day to day but while on the bike I allow myself to remember how exceptionally fortunate I am to be alive and able to do this ride.
Thanks for reading this and thank you so much for thinking to sponsor me on this Cycle for the Cause ride!
Peace and aloha,
