More than 2300 riders rolled into Los Angeles on Saturday, June 11, at the culmination of a 545-mile ride that is the world’s largest annual AIDS fundraiser. This year marked the 15th anniversary of the AIDS/LifeCycle event. The event also coincided with the 35th anniversary of the Center for Diseae Control's first reported HIV cases.
Fundraising for San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the HIV/AIDS services of Los Angeles LGBT Center, AIDS/Lifecycle raised over $16.1 million for the HIV prevention and care services that serve tens of thousands every year. The top fundraiser, Eric Rozendahl, raised over $64,000.
During the 7 days of the ride, over 2,300 cyclists and over 600 volunteer roadies pulled off another great event. The youngest rider was 18 and the eldest was 83.
“Every year, AIDS/LifeCycle cyclists gear up for their community in support of the free programs and services of San Francisco AIDS Foundation,” said Joe Hollendoner, CEO of San Francisco AIDS Foundation. “The dedication and sacrifice required to train for a 545-mile ride is an inspiration and I am delighted to be part of this year's event.”
