Wow, what a week!
World AIDS Day, Giving Tuesday, TogetheRide LIVE and a monthly indoor cycling class all in 5 days! Of course, we are very excited that together we added $75,582.01 towards our $5 million goal! Keep up the great work! If you missed any of last week’s programs, head over to our YouTube channel to get caught up with the recordings.
Megan Minkiewicz from Powell Butte, Oregon
On World AIDS Day, Megan raised $3,333.25! That is enough to cover 133 Rapid HIV Antibody tests for people at Magnet and other SFAF sites. Thank you, Megan, for your commitment to this mission and for raising a lifetime total of $321,144 to END AIDS!
Harry Stark from Berkeley, California
Harry had 16 individual donations in the 24 hours of World AIDS Day! What’s Harry’s tip for fundraising success? “I share my experience with everyone I know and ask them to be a part of the Ride with me”. Thanks, Harry!
When the HIV epidemic started over 30 years ago, people who were newly diagnosed could expect to live 1-2 years. Thanks to advancements in HIV care and antiretroviral treatment, today, nearly half of the people living with diagnosed HIV in the US are 50 or older (hiv.gov). The Los Angeles LGBT Center and San Francisco AIDS Foundation are focused on helping these long term survivors not just survive, but thrive.
Watch Russ’s story – he survived the early days of the epidemic, but lost all his friends and family. The Center is here for Russ, and for thousands of other seniors.

The more the merrier! Invite your friends and family to join TogetheRide! They can learn more on Wednesday at our information session where we’ll talk about the new fun and active ways to get involved with TogetheRide. We will also discuss where the money goes and how fundraising helps provide life-changing programs and services.
Wednesday, December 9th: TogetheRide Info Session
