I'm physically unable to ride in the 2017 Hill Country Ride for AIDS (an awesome ride through the beautiful Texas hill country), however, I have registered as a VIRTUAL RIDER with team Project Transitions-Bike Curious? . This is the 18th anniversary of the HCRA. They have raised more than $8,000,000 for people affected by HIV/AIDS in our community, and this year I want to help them raise even more!

This money will go directly to 10 local non-profits assisting those in central Texas affected by HIV/AIDS. There are 6,000+ Central Texans living with HIV and/or AIDS, and there's a new HIV diagnosis every 35 hours in Central Texas.

I would be so grateful for any donation you can share in my quest to help provide much needed services and to offer a better quality of life for those of us living with HIV/AIDS (yes, I personally live with HIV/AIDS).

Virtual Riders are COOL

I, like many others are not fortunate enough to be able to physically ride a bicycle - that's why I registered as a VIRTUAL RIDER. I wanted to be a part of the Hill Country Ride for AIDS fund raising effort. Sure, I could have written a check, but on a fixed income, I could only contribute a very small amount. But as a Virtual Rider, I've been able to raise much more through the generous donations of friends, and I'm spreading awareness that HIV/AIDS has not gone away. It's not been cured. It still affects thousands of people each year. I may not be sitting in the seat of a bicycle during the ride, but I'm having the time of my life sharing the purpose of the Hill Country Ride for AIDS. There's still a little over a week before the ride, I'm a tad-bit shy of my goal, but I have faith my friends will come through and help me reach my goal.
