Welcome to Liz Bennett's birthday fundraiser for TPAN
Friday July 26th is my 60th birthday. It is a milestone that I am very happy to have reached and look forward to good health for years to come. In celebrating this birthday I am very conscious of my good fortune to have been supported by community, to have had great access to health care and to have been free of many financial and social concerns that are the day to day worries of many of our clients.
The clients we serve at TPAN have many barriers. Systemic racism, prejudices of all kinds, lifelong health concerns, stigma, poverty and homelessness are among the many challenges they face every day. My colleagues, in providing the wide array of services we give our clients, are professional and dedicated in ways that inspire me each day. As a community based organization, that really tries to meets everyone where they are, we are unique and effective. We save lives!
I am actively raising funds that deliver health care and supportive services in Chicago and through our magazine, nationwide. Despite the advances in HIV prevention and treatment, our doors are bursting with people who need our services and we need your donations.
We all have many causes in our lives to help fix our broken world. This time, please consider joining me in my virtual Ride for Life Chicago. Any gift that's meaningful to you will positively impact our service to our clients. We would be happy with any donation: $6 or $36 or $60 or $600 or $6,000 or anything you can give!
Through the Ride for Life Chicago, thousands of donors and more than 300 volunteer cyclists, advocates, crew, and team members help provide care to 2,000 people every year in Chicago and a lifeline of HIV health and treatment information to more than 100,000 people across the country. Our mission is to empower all lives affected by HIV and its many health challenges. The name “Ride for Life” reflects this event’s powerful impact: every mile, every donation and sponsorship, and every volunteer helps save lives through the work of TPAN and our community partners.
