This is Why I Ride the AIDs Vaccine 200
This year, I have the privilege of service as the Captain of the AID Atlanta Riding for Hope Team, and I feel a personal responsibility to help my team raise as much as we possibly can to end this epidemic. I believe that putting all our efforts behind eradicating this disease is one of the most important things we can do. But my primary cause for riding stems from the stories friend's have told over many dinners thruout the years. .
I ride for the tens of thousands of brave LGBT people who faced this infection with no support from their families, their health care system, their insurance and their government. I ride to honor their memory – for the lives they lived, and the lives they could have lived. For the sons, daughters, moms, dads, brothers, sisters, lovers, and friends they were, and should have been for much, much longer. I ride for them, so that we won’t forget what they went through. And so that we can honor their legacy in what we stand for, and how we live.
