Friends and Family,
Early next Sunday morning I will saddle up on my bicycle, join with 3,000 other riders, and over the next week cycle the 545 miles down to Los Angeles as part of the AIDS Life Cycle charity ride. I've never ran more than three miles consecutively in my life or trained for an endurance sport of any kind, so this is probably going to be an interesting week for me. And by interesting I really mean long, painful and rewarding. Or quite possibly just long and painful. In either case I'll take lots of pictures!
This year will be the seventh annual Aids Lifecycle ride. It's a really remarkable program. This year they are projected to raise over $11,000,000 to fight AIDS. I encourage you to read a bit more about the organization on their website:
I've comitted to raising $2,500 myself for the event. You already know many important reasons to support causes such as AIDS research and treatment, so I will just say it would mean an incredible amount to me personally if you were able to donate in support of my ride:
