200 miles and $2000....I am only $350 away!
It's that time of year again. I am sweating and aching as I train for a 2-day, 200 mile bike ride ride from Atlanta to Eatonton and back through some of North Georgia's beautiful countryside to raise money for vaccine research benefitting the Emory Vaccine Center that will one day make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. While the event has been canceled due to COVID-19, I still intend to raise $2000 and ride 200 miles.
I am riding not only to raise awareness and help fund a cure but also for those that are not able to ride. I ride for the 34 million who have died from AIDS related causes, the 37 million who live with HIV globally, and for the countless many that will be saved by the vaccine. Latest figures show 1.1 million people in the U.S. are living with HIV with nearly 40,000 new diagnoses occur annually according to 2016 statistics. While great strides have been made in both the treatment and prevention of the disease, a vaccine continues to be the best hope to end this pandemic.
Please consider donating to this worthy cause. Any amount, large or small, is greatly appreciated. All money raised is fully tax deductible and 100% goes directly to the Emory Vaccine Center since corporate sponsorships underwrite the entire cost of the event.
Thanks for all you do! Lots of love.
