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.

You were disappointed because you ONLY made it 91 miles today?????

Cousin, you are too awesome for words. This ride is clearly going to change your life!

What an inspiration you are!

Message from Brendan's dad Jerry. Your 91 miles, is 991% more than 91% of the rest of the world did today!
And, your determination, spirit and dedication is 105 miles and 100% awesome human being.
Love Jerry and Janne - King City California.
