AIDS Ride for Life 2010
Bicyclists to travel 100 miles to support the Southern Tier AIDS Program
Ithaca, New York- Our community deserves effective and innovative HIV prevention, education and outreach services. The Southern Tier AIDS Program is working to provide these needs with our 12th Annual AIDS Ride for Life – a one day, 100 mile, fully pledged bicycle ride through the beautiful landscape surrounding Cayuga Lake. Our goal is to have 450 riders participate in bringing hope to individuals and helping those in our community affected by HIV and AIDS.
The event takes place on Saturday, September 11, 2010. The route starts at Stewart Park and ends at Cass Park. There will be 6 pit stops along the route where riders can replenish their water bottles, stock up on energy foods and use the facilities. Support and gear vehicles and motorcycles will drive the route to aid any riders and provide encouragement as needed.
The AIDS Ride for Life has raised over $1.5 million dollars in its 11-year history. All donated funds stay local and are used by the Southern Tier AIDS Program to provide its services directly to its clients and the community. Clients are able to receive case management, support and advocacy, housing placement, rent, utility and mortgage assistance.
Riders must raise a minimum of $300 to register. Teams and individual riders are encouraged to learn more and register today at www.aidsrideforlife.org.
