Welcome to the Personal Page for Dale Woods
In September 2018, Team Windy City Cycling Club and I will be joining hundreds of other individuals riding 230 miles in support of the 2018 Ride for AIDS Chicago.
I'm participating in this event to raise vital funds to support HIV services in the community. In addition, through my participation, and with your support we will continue to raise awareness around HIV in an effort to reduce the debilitating effects of shame and stigma associated with HIV/AIDS. With the political climate we face today, funding and other support for HIV/AIDS continues to see cuts. The funds raised by the Ride for AIDS for TPAN's services are more critical now than ever before.
Preparing for this Ride is nothing compared to what people living with HIV go through on a daily basis. We are the fortunate ones who are able to share two beautiful days of riding together, sharing moments of joy, moments of poignancy, and memories of friends no longer with us.
Thank you for your support. Please consider a donation to either my personal effort or to my team's joint effort.
Our goal for this year is to reach $600k in fundraising! Every one of those dollars goes a long way. In 2017 TPAN provided 992 Chicagoans with compassionate, individualized care and services. Imagine what your participation will help TPAN achieve for 2018. $50 alone, covers the cost of 1 two-hour session with a licensed therapist.
We all have to start somewhere!
