THE STORY:

In 2013, I completed my first AIDS/LifeCycle ride, I raised just over $6,200 that year. I have since completed three additional ALC rides, raising nearly $35,000 in total. 

After my first ride, I began to ask the question, "why doesn't San Diego have a ride to support its local HIV/AIDS community?"  Being a dreamer, I thought why not plan one - then reality set in, it's a fulltime job to plan a ride and I don't have that time. But I shared my dream with others, one of whom was my good friend Jere. 

Jere proposed to me that we develop a ride to benefit Stepping Stone of San Diego, an alcohol and addiction recovery home for LGBT people, who celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2016. Born was the first annual “The Recovery Ride.” A group of men and women came together, meeting weekly for three months and successfully organized the ride, which was held on January 10.  But one thing was missing, according to some, a FUNDRAISING option – we listened and responded.

The ride has partnered with The San Diego HIV Funding Collaborative as well as continuing our support of Stepping Stone again for 2017.  All funds raised will benefit these two organizations, both of whom are doing wonderful work in San Diego’s Recovery and HIV/AIDS communities. The Recovery Ride is 100% volunteer based; we have no paid staff. We want to grow this into a major San Diego cycling event, to raise money, awareness, and break down the stigma around HIV/AIDS and alcoholism and drug addiction.

SO, after that lengthy introduction, I am again asking for your support and donations to a cause I believe in and which I think helps many men and women in need who are trying to better their lives.

I know I ask a lot, but for 2017, this will be my only fundraising focus. I will still be involved in AIDS/LifeCycle, but not as a rider, but doing support, as they affectionately call it, being a “Rodie.”  ALC changed my life and I will be forever grateful to the people I have met along the way!

Thank you for your support over the last few years!  I hope I can count on you again for 2017.

In loving service,

Rob
