Donate to AIDS/LifeCycle online Send a message of support to a participant on ALC7



Maybe it was some kind of divine wind that pushed me up the steps to the ALC7 meeting. Maybe it was my guilt of not being able to help. Or maybe it was the spirits of my good friends who lead me to the ALC7 office that night. I’ll never truly know but I went to the meeting and signed up. It was the best decision I had ever made. I have been training and fundraising since September and now I have the power to make a difference. One day when I meet up with my friends who have gone before me, I can tell them that in honor of them and the millions of people living with AIDS/HIV, I became part of the education, care and the search for a cure.

Yay, Shawnet! You're an awesome choice for blogger and representative of the ride. I'll see you on the road!

Your teammate,

Go, Go Netia. You can get this done. We all have faith in you and love you. Go directly to the finish line. And thanks so much for carrying my beloved brother's name. I will always love and miss you Roderick Garner.

All of your training ride leaders are SO proud of you we're about to burst. You've come so far in these last few months and I'm certain you'll be nothing short of sensational on AIDS/LifeCycle. You make me very proud to be a part of this incredible program.
Tailwinds, my dear friend....

Thank you for your detailed account, your description of the ride is wonderful. I can see you on Tosca climbing the hills. Amazing! I thought of you when Lourdes and I went to see Tosca on Saturday. All the best to you, your follow riders and roadies!
