Sacramento AIDS Ride to Fund Dental Care, Food, Support for HIV+ Youth and Adults

Abstract
NorCal AIDS Cycle (NCAC) has named 11 nonprofit recipients of funds to be raised by its annual 330-mile four-day ride, scheduled for May 16–19, 2013. The following beneficiary organizations will share the $250,000 plus expected revenue from its HIV/AIDS cycling fundraiser: Breaking Barriers, CARES Clinic Dental Program, Golden Rule Services, Harm Reduction Services, River City Food Bank, Sacramento Gay & Lesbian Center, SANE (Safer Alternatives thru Networking and Education), and Sunburst Projects, all of Sacramento, Calif.; Sierra Foothills AIDS Foundation of Auburn, Calif.; Caring Choices of Chico, Calif.; and Shasta Trinity Tehama HIV Food Bank of Redding, Calif. Since it began in 2005, NCAC has raised approximately $1.25 million dollars to benefit nonprofit HIV/AIDS service providers in the Greater Sacramento region and surrounding areas. NCAC’s contributions to small nonprofit organizations has meant the difference between these organizations being able to continue providing HIV/AIDS services to remote or underserved California communities or being forced to close. NCAC raised slightly more than $250,000 in 2012, with 150 cyclists and 75 support crew members. Each participating NCAC cyclist pledges to raise a minimum of $1,500, and each volunteer crew member pledges $250, with many participants raising much more than those minimums. NCAC is offering a “Valentine Special” discounted registration to show appreciation to its cyclists and volunteer crew members. On February 13–14, participants can register for $50, a $25 discount off the regular registration fee. Visit www.NorCalAIDSCycle.org, click on “register,” and use the code “HEART” to receive the special discount rate. The 2013 ride will begin on Thursday, May 16, with an opening ceremony and rideout at Folsom Lake. Cyclists will follow a challenging, circuitous route through the Sierra foothills and northern Central Valley, and will be able to camp overnight at Gridley, Williams, and Woodland, Calif. The ride will end on Sunday, May 19, with a closing ceremony at the California State Capitol.
