I hope this finds you well and basking in, what was, a beautiful summer!
So, it is that time of the year again when I write you to let you know I am once again getting ready to ride my bike to Provincetown to raise awareness and needed funds for those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. This is our 20th year, you and I, as I did my first AIDS ride back in 1996. As I write this letter, I realize that all the money you have given me over the last 2 DECADES totals over $93,000.00 and may hit $100,000.00 this year. Wow!
And, I know I say this every year, but I have to say it again, it is YOUR support that helps sustain me and keep me doing this work so THANK YOU again.
In a world full of bad news, violence, and political strife I continue to feel so incredibly lucky to participate in this event each and every year where 500-600 people come together, from all walks of life, and watch over one another and ensure everyone gets to Provincetown safe and sound. It is because of you, my family, my friends, and so many dedicated business partners and sponsors that I am able to believe that with all that divides us, there is far more that unites us, and LOVE will always conquer hate.
Harbor To The Bay was founded in 2003 by a group of volunteers who knew they could do better by creating an event where the emphasis was on the cause and where 100% of the money raised would go to the organizations who were best equipped to provide needed services. After 13 successful years we continue to give 100% of donations directly to our partners: Fenway Health, Aids Support Group of Cape Cod, Community Research Initiative, and the Aids Action Committee.
I can never say it enough - Thank you so very much for all you have done over the years to support Harbor To The Bay, and most importantly me - your friendship and support mean everything - I love and cherish each and every one of you. And, I will say this again, if this is a year that you just cannot contribute, I understand and it is OK to take a break, please do not feel bad! If you can donate this year, please remember NO amount is to small when 100% of it is going directly to where it is needed.
All the best always.
