Iíve Made a commitment in the battle against AIDS thatís very important to me. From July 10 - 15, Iíll be riding a bicycle 500 miles, the entire distance from the Twin Cities (Minneapolis St. Paul, Minnesota) to Wisconsin down to Chicago. Iíll be participating in the Twin Cities > Wisconsin > Chicago Aids Ride 5 Presented by Tanqueray with 2,000 other people.
Iíve also made the commitment to raise $2,300 in order to participate in the Ride. Together, we hope to raise over $6 million for six not-for-profit organizations in Chicago. Without these agencies, many individuals with AIDS might literally have nowhere else to turn.
Over 360,000 Americans have died of AIDS in the last 16 years. Thatís more than 6 times the number of Americans who died in the Vietnam War. Iím doing the AIDS Ride because I want to make a bold statement thatís as big as this disease.
I need your support in helping me attain my goal of $2,300. Together, we could help fight this deadly battle. Please help me overcome this great challenge by making a pledge.
Thank you for your support.
