In California alone there are 151,000 people living with HIV. Nationally, 70 percent of all new infections occurring in communities of color and people under the age of 25 are increasingly affected.
I’m participating in AIDS/ Life Cycle 2014. 7 AIDS/ Life Cyclee is a fully supported, 7-day bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise money and awareness in the fight against HIV/AIDS. AIDS/ Life Cycle 2014 will take place June 1st through June 7th, 2014.
Every year, this landmark ride through beautiful California delivers a life-changing experience for thousands of participants from all backgrounds and fitness levels united by a common desire to do something heroic.
Your donation helps me to support the mission of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and their many programs like Magnet.
For more than 30 years, San Francisco AIDS Foundation has been answering the call from our community. A lot has changed since we first opened our doors on Castro Street in 1982, but our commitment remains the same: to see the end of HIV/AIDS!
Through education, advocacy, and free local services for prevention and care, San Francisco AIDS Foundation confronts HIV in neighborhoods most impacted by the disease and gives a powerful voice to all people living with the disease nationwide.
Magnet is a place where gay men connect.In addition to our clinical services, Magnet is an art gallery and lounge. We are a place where people can engage and participate or just hang out. A program of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, we’re unique in our approach to total health – we promote the physical, mental and social well-being of gay men.
I became involved in programs like AIDS/ Life Cycle because I see so many young guys, ages 18 and up, that are becoming infected with the disease. Most do not use protection and some believe that HIV/AIDS is over. In 2009 I participated in Testing Makes Us Stronger – a national campaign with a special focus in six initial key U.S. cities where Black gay and bisexual men are heavily affected by HIV: Atlanta, Baltimore, Houston, New York, Oakland and Washington D.C. and Black Pride events across the country. http://hivtest.cdc.gov/stronger/
Just $10 or $20 supports those fighting HIV/AIDS.
