Join Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN) for its life changing 13th Annual Ride for AIDS Chicago, July 9-10, 2016.
Held over 2-days, the 200-mile Ride brings together those living with HIV, LGBTQ-advocates, amateur cyclists, and endurance athletes to raise funds for HIV-services and celebrate human potential. In its 13 year history, the Ride has raised more than $4 million and served its mission to be a catalyst for change in the HIV/AIDS Community, raising vital funds and fighting the stigma associated with the disease.
Ride for AIDS Chicago (RFAC) is the Midwest's only back-to-back century ride; and we're proud to offer a 100-mile option this year.
200-mile riders cycle from Evanston, IL to Elkhorn, WI on Saturday, relaxing at Camp Lutherdale for the night, before making the return trip to Evanston. 100-mile riders are shuttled to camp on Saturday afternoon and join the returning participants for the trip to Evanston. All participants arrive in Evanston for RFAC's signature Finale Festival.
RFAC is a fully-supported event, with crew cars and motorcycle support roving the course. Unlike other charity rides, RFAC includes a free 24-week indoor and outdoor training season to get you road-ready, free accommodations and meals for participants during the event, fundraising assistance, constant encouragement, and has no registration fee. Riders must fundraise $1,000 to participate, and crew are encouraged to raise $500.
As TPAN’s largest fundraising event, the Ride empowers those living with or vulnerable for HIV/AIDS to live open, healthy, and productive lives. The 2016 Ride benefits TPAN, About Face Theatre, AIDS Foundation of Chicago, Center on Halsted, Chicago House, Fred Says, and Howard Brown.
Ride or crew with us this year and see how hundreds of miles will change thousands of lives!
