Fundraising Goal $10,000.00

My Message

Thank you for supporting me in the 19th Annual Friends For Life Bike Rally. The Bike Rally is the sustaining fundraiser for the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation (PWA). Your donation helps PWA to fund services for thousands of men, transmen, transwomen, women and children living with HIV/AIDS.

Last year I had a bike crash at the end of March (a communication mishap with another cyclist in a bike lane while commuting) that resulted in torn shoulder ligaments. I still rode last year, because the cause is still important. This year in February I had surgery to reattach the end of my collarbone. I’ve a ways to go yet before I'm pain-free and regain full range of motion and and strength, but I’m riding again and still plan to take part in this worthwhile event for my tenth consecutive year. Your support would be greatly appreciated.

All donations over $20 will receive a charitable tax receipt.
