2,500 Riders in AIDS/LifeCycle Set to Leave San Francisco June 1, Bound for Los Angeles, Raising a Record $11+ Million for HIV/AIDS Services
Date:5/27/2008

SAN FRANCISCO, May 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --

What: More than 2,500 cyclists and 500 volunteer "roadies" begin a 7-day, 545-mile bike ride to Los Angeles on Sunday, June 1. Participants in the 7th annual AIDS/LifeCycle will have raised more than $11 million for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center. No other annual event raises more money for HIV/AIDS services and prevention. In the last six years, AIDS/LifeCycle has raised more than $40 million for HIV/AIDS services.

On Day 1, cyclists will depart from Daly City and ride nearly 80 miles to Santa Cruz. Riders and volunteers will take part in a moving opening ceremony before setting off on their journey. A week later, they will arrive in Los Angeles to be greeted by thousands of friends and supporters for an inspirational closing ceremony.
