On September 28th, I will be biking 285 miles from Boston to NYC to raise money for Housing Works to continue their work helping people with HIV and AIDS.
For over 20 years, Housing Works has been working to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS through relentless advocacy, the provision of lifesaving services, and entrepreneurial businesses that sustain their efforts. Housing Works provides medical, dental, mental health, substance abuse, housing, and social services to those living with HIV/AIDS. Additionally, Housing Works litigates to protect the rights of those living with HIV/AIDS and relentlessly lobbies for these same causes.

Help Housing Works feed, clothe, and offer medical care and services to someone living with HIV/AIDS today!
The best way to cheer me on is to assist in the fundraising effort. Any amount helps, no matter how small . . . and if you can't make a donation, you can still help by spreading the word in person, on Facebook, on Linked In, and on other social media sites.
Why bike to fundraise? Since leaving nursing to practice law, I have been wanting to do more to help others and make a difference in the world. After rediscovering my passion for biking, I learned about Braking the Cycle and realized that this is the perfect way to make a difference while simultaneously doing what I love. My personal interest in helping those with HIV/AIDS stems from losing people to AIDS in the 80s/90s. We have come a long way in the fight against AIDS, but this fight is not over and there is still a lot of work to be done and people who need help. This is what Housing Works is all about.

Donating through this website is simple, fast, and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts. Of course, your donations are tax-deductible.
I understand not everyone has the resources to help financially. Remember, if you can't make a contribution (or even if you can), you can still help by spreading the word.
Thanks for your suport,
