Riding for TPAN 2021
2021 looks a lot different than prior years.We've been through COVID and it's been hard for many people. For some of us, we've been lucky to have time to reflect and take stock on what is good in our lives, even as it's been hard. This makes me more determined than ever to help our clients through joining this fundraiser.
I have raised money in prior years but this year I'm raising money and I'm riding, for the first time. (OK it helps that we have 25 & 50 & 100 mile options). The RIDE this year, is one day this year instead of two -but our monetary needs are greater than ever.
The clients we serve at TPAN have many barriers. Systemic racism, prejudices of all kinds, health disparities, stigma, mental illness and homelessness are among the many challenges they face every day. As a community based organization, that really tries to meets everyone where they are, we are unique and effective. We reach clients that no one else does. HIV and related conditions have not gone away and we are committed to providing services as long as long as we are needed. All during COVID we remained accessible to our clients. We are effective in our help. We save lives!
There are many many causes in our lives and I hope they all benefit from your generosity. Please know that helping TPAN does help the most vulnerable. Our doors need to remain open. Any gift that's meaningful to you, from $5 to $1,800 will positively impact our service to our clients.
Come join me on my training rides or cheer us on, on September 12th.
. Love, Liz
