I'm raising money for this event: Chicago 2011
 My Message
Every once in a while we find ourselves surrounded by truly inspiring people – people who give their minds, bodies and souls to their passions. This summer I am lucky enough to be riding in a 200 mile charity bicycling event with a group like that.

This July I am participating in the Ride for Aids Chicago, a charity bicycling event from Illinois to Wisconsin that helps raise money for an AIDS service organization in Chicago called Test Positive Awareness Network (TPAN.) I am lucky enough to be riding along with 49 other individuals, many of whom work closely with TPAN.

Over the next few months, I will be training to get in shape for the ride, becoming a Chicago Bike Commuter. I will probably buy padded bike pants, and maybe clippie shoes. I expect by mid-June to have replaced 90% of my wardrobe with spandex in an effort to raise awareness both for this fundraising event, and my own personal commitment to this issue. I may even knit a gigantic TPAN flag to fly proudly from my bike. This ride is a personal challenge for me, and one I look forward to completing with your help.

TPAN’s mission is to empower and support those living with HIV and AIDS through peer-led programming, support services, and information dissemination. With over 1.1 million people in the United States alone living with the HIV Virus, TPAN’s work continues to be essential. In 2006, there were almost 31,000 in Illinois living with HIV; over 50% of them with a diagnosis of AIDS.

Whether you know someone living with the HIV/AIDS virus or not, please help me make a difference in the lives of men, women, and children who are living with and are affected by HIV and AIDS. Your donation – whether $5 or $50 will show your support for those living with this disease. You will bring awareness to a cause that so many have forgotten, and you will help alleviate the stigma still associated with HIV/AIDS. You will be contributing to a group of amazing people fighting an amazing fight, and supporting me in this major event. Your pledges will be what fuels me to complete this ride, an are truly an invaluable gift, so please give today and spread the word about the Ride for Aids and the amazing people participating in it.

Yours in Spandex,

Catherine
