AIDS/LifeCycle 8 to Raise $10+ Million to Fight AIDS

2,200 cyclists to start San Francisco-to-Los Angeles ride May 31

Participants have the physical strength to complete a challenging course, and the emotional connectedness to help others succeed on an exhausting, yet exhilarating journey."

Riders train for months to prepare for the rigorous ride, and raise a minimum of $3,000 each to support the work of the two sponsoring organizations. The event has raised approximately $50 million to fight AIDS since it began in 2002.
