It’s World AIDS Day and We’re Starting to Think About the Friends for Life Bike Rally

December 1st is World Aids Day. World AIDS Day is a day dedicated to commemorate those who have passed on and to raise awareness about AIDS and the global spread of the HIV virus

It’s also time to start getting organized for the 2016 Friends for Life Bike Rally.

“On July 24, 2016, more than 400 Riders and Crew will embark on either a 1-day, 108 km journey from Toronto to Port Hope or a 6-day, 600 km journey from Toronto to Montréal, both in support of people living with HIV/AIDS. PWA’s Friends For Life Bike Rally is the sustaining fundraiser of the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation. The experience of the Bike Rally promises to have a profound impact on the lives of every participant.”

And the Fit is a Feminist Issue bloggers will be there in full force!

So far we have Catherine, Natalie, Susan, Sarah, and me ready to ride. Looks like we will even have our own team with Susan and I as the team leads. Suggestions for names anyone?

Other.bloggers and friends of the blog might join us on the 1 day version (new this year). How about you?

Hope to see you there Christine Daigle and Kim Solga. Maybe even Tracy!

Last year Stephanie Pearl-McPhee used the power of her wonderful blog to raise $72,650. That made Stephanie the rally’s top fundraiser. Now feminists aren’t the most competitive people on the planet. (See Tracy’s post The Competitive Feminist.)

But it’s for a good cause.

World AIDS Day and GivingTuesday
World AIDS DayWorld AIDS Day is held on December 1 each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to remember those we have lost over the years. GivingTuesday is the international movement for giving and volunteering, following Cyber Monday, and the launch of the holiday giving season.
This year, World AIDS Day and GivingTuesday fall on the same day.
Use the occasion to share your reason for participating in the Bike Rally and encourage others to make a gift and support your Bike Rally fundraising efforts which will support the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation.
