The FACE AIDS Bay Area Ride is a one day, 50- or 15-mile bike ride through the mid-Peninsula. Participants in the Bay Ride commit to raise at least $125, which is the cost of one year’s worth of anti-retroviral treatment for an individual living with HIV/AIDS in Rwanda.
Funds raised through the Bay Area Ride are used to support FACE AIDS’ and Partners In Health’s work in Rwanda. Both FACE AIDS and Partners In Health work to provide comprehensive health care and socio-economic support to individuals and communities affected by HIV/AIDS.
The Bay Area Ride funds support FACE AIDS’ programs in Rwanda, as well as FACE AIDS’ matching support of student chapter fundraising for Partners In Health – Rwanda.
Specifically, FACE AIDS works with groups of HIV-affected young people in rural Eastern Rwanda, providing them with the trainings and resources to design and implement community health projects that address chronic health and development issues. FACE AIDS also provides these young people with access to microsavings, credit, and business training.
In addition, FACE AIDS makes an annual grant to Partners In Health to support their efforts to provide comprehensive health care to HIV-affected individuals and communities in Rwanda.
The Bay Area Ride is a powerful opportunity for individuals to come together for a fantastic cause. You will fundraise to change health outcomes and lives in Rwanda, raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and global health inequities, and get some exercise in the California sunshine!
The Bay Area Ride is on May 7, 2011. The route begins and ends at Weisshaar Park in Palo Alto, CA. Learn more about all the details at: http://faceaids.org/bayarearide.html
About Me: Hi! So since joining the Stanford triathlon team, my idea of what constitutes fun has become a bit unusual; hence the decision to embark on a 50 mile bike ride in one day. But, it is also for a great cause. FACE AIDS, founded by three Stanford students, is a non-profit organization dedicated to building a global movement of young leaders to fight HIV/AIDS. I have committed to raising $125 by May 7, 2011, the date of the Bay Area Ride. This $125 goal represents the cost of one year of life-saving anti-retroviral treatment for an individual living with HIV in Rwanda. I would be so grateful if you would make a donation to support me in achieving my fundraising goal. Donations in any amount would be greatly appreciated - every dollar counts. Thanks!!
