Ride for AIDS Chicago $10,000 Matching Challenge

From Robert Garofalo: 

Preparing for the Ride for AIDS Chicago has been an extremely
challenging and rewarding endeavor for me and for the more than 250
other Riders who have been preparing for this two-day, 200 mile bike
ride.

 I think we’re ready. It’s the support of friends, family and
complete strangers that make this adventure worth it for me and the
entire team.


A good friend has offered to match dollar for dollar, up to $10,000,
every contribution posted on my page starting July 10, 2012.
Your
contribution today will be doubled! Please show your support for me, my
fellow riders and for the people who receive services at TPAN.

100% of donations directly support services at TPAN. For 25 years TPAN
has empowered people living with HIV through peer-led programming,
support services, information dissemination, and advocacy. For friends
who rely on them, these services are vital.
The Ride for AIDS Chicago has already surpassed last year’s recording
breaking $535,000. We have a goal of raising $600,000. Please join us
in this challenge!

**I know many of you are being directed to my page due to the generosity
of other riders. KNOW that we are all raising monies toward the same
goal and please make note of who you are honoring with a donation. I
have met some of the most remarkable, generous and talented people as
part of this ride and I know TOGETHER we can reach this challenge
!

Please make a donation now.
