Friends For Life Bike Rally

Many years ago, when one of my closest friends was dying of AIDS, the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation offered him a great deal of assistance during what were difficult days indeed. I never really properly thanked them for this, and it's been just one more item on my ever-lengthening "meant-to-do" list.

The goal of the Friends For Life Bike Rally is to raise money for the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation. In memory of of his life, on this the 10th anniversary of the Bike Rally, I've finally decided to say thanks, and to help pay some back, by participating. In order to do so, riders must raise a minimum of $2,200 in donations by June 30th, 2008. I frankly consider this to be a much-more-than-merely-daunting fundraising goal (I'm already starting to sweat at the idea of having to personally donate $2000 to participate), so I'm hanging out my hat in the hopes that passers-by might toss in some spare change.

What, can't see the hat? My hat is here: http://www.fey.ca/bikerally

The Toronto PWA Foundation will use the money raised by the Rally to fund on-going programs and services for men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS.
