Welcome to My AV200 Fundraising Page!
Thanks for visting my AV200 fundraising page. AV200 is a 200 mile charity bike ride that has raised more then 2.2 million dollars for HIV/AIDS research. This is an amazing all volunteer organization and 100% of donated money goes to the Emory Vaccine Center.
Why donate for charity bike ride for HIV/AIDS vaccine research?
-There were 1.8 million new cases of HIV worldwide; ~40,000 in the US
-There were 1 million deaths related to HIV worlwide; ~12,000 in the US
-35 million people died from HIV since the start of the epidemic
While treatment for HIV is a true medical miracle, many people do not have access to medication or are unable to take medication consistently (have you tried taking a pill everyday without forgetting?).
In my short career is a doctor, I have seen too many folks my age and younger become sick from HIV and die. These people could be riding a bike with us. We ride for those who cannot ride because life was taken too soon.
A vaccine is clearly needed!
