I will be the first donation to my fundraising page! Why, because hopefully that will encourage the next one, and the next one, and the next one….…
Friends, Family and Neighbors,
Many of you know, I have been passionate about HIV advocacy and treatment for most of my adult life. I am so blessed to have worked at an agency that encourages me to pursue this passion in a very tangible and impactful way. Over the past 13 years I’ve held many roles at Community Research Initiative of New England and have personally witnessed the difference our work makes, both locally and globally. Our work has contributing to approval and access to almost ALL of the HIV treatments available today! And I am proud that we are now focusing our expertise on Hepatitis C treatment and cure.
CRI, now in its 25th year as a community based non-profit committed to improving the lives of those living with HIV through research and treatment access, relies heavily on fundraising and donations to support our vital work. A beneficiary of the Harbor to the Bay ride, the event and the funds raised are vital to supporting our critical work.
As I have done for several years, I will be crewing for H2B and my goal is to raise over $1,000 for CRI's amazing HIV and Hep C research. Although I participate every year in this event, I have always been uncomfortable asking for funding. There are many great causes in the world! However, year after year, I've witnessed the impact of this ride, and hope that you'll consider contributing just a small amount to add to that impact. Please know that 100% of your donation goes towards continuing our critical work. And believe me, the work is not done yet.
