The BIG day is just around the corner
« on: May 05, 2008, 05:09:57 PM »
This is it guys, the last stretch before the start of my 7 day 550+ mile ride from San Francisco to L.A to raise money and awareness to fight HIV/AIDS.
I have raised $1,300.00 so far but I still need help.  I have to raise $2,500.00 to participate in the ride and since I have 4 weeks left I am begging for help. 
I will ride!  I don't care how, or what I have to do in order to come up with those $2,500.00.  In the worst case scenario I will make up the difference with the money I've been saving to attend AMG.  Although I will be very sad if I can't attend our AMG this year, I will be more upset if I can't reach the required fundraising amount.
I know many of us here have financial limitations and I know that you would contribute if you could, but I ask you to tell your friends and family and ask if they could help. 
This ride benefits the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the L.A. GLBT center, but the beneficiaries extend beyond the geographical boundaries of California.  The money raised is used by the San Francisco AIDS Foundation advocates at the federal, state and local levels to ensure that hundreds of thousands of people affected by HIV and AIDS have access to care, treatment, housing, and prevention services, and that they benefit from related research efforts.

The AIDS Foundation's Public Policy Department plays a leading role in securing federal, state, and local government funding for crucial HIV/AIDS-related programs. Public policy staff members also work to ensure passage of sound HIV/AIDS policies and legislation.

The AIDS Foundation's HIV Advocacy Network organizes and mobilizes AIDS advocates, service providers, and people living with HIV/AIDS to advocate for effective AIDS policies.

Global AIDS Programs
The Pangaea Global AIDS Foundation is an affiliate of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. Pangaea's mission is to broaden access to HIV/AIDS antiretroviral treatment and care around the world, with special emphasis on resource-limited settings. Pangaea provides assistance to in-country and international partners in the development of healthcare infrastructure for HIV treatment efforts.

Since its founding in 2001, Pangaea has played a significant role in developing and implementing HIV treatment access initiatives in several countries, including Uganda, South Africa, and Rwanda.

Since 2004, Pangaea has partnered with the William J. Clinton Foundation's HIV/AIDS Initiative in China, assisting in the development of national HIV treatment guidelines and training of healthcare professionals. Pangaea is also working with the Clinton Foundation in Ukraine, helping to develop the government's HIV treatment initiative.
In Uganda, Pangaea partnered with Pfizer Inc, Makerere University and the Academic Alliance for AIDS Care and Prevention in Africa to help create the Infectious Diseases Institute. The Institute, which opened in August 2004, is a state-of-the-art HIV/AIDS training center and clinic that sees more than 250 patients every day.

Thank you very much for your support and I look forward to seeing the other members of the Forums who will be alongside myself in this challenging event.

POSITIVE PEDALERS... We are a group of people living with HIV/AIDS, eliminating stigma through our positive public example.
