AIDS/LifeCycle participants raise funds for critical programs to end HIV and raise awareness that AIDS is still devastating our society, particularly the gay community and communities of color in San Francisco, Los Angeles and throughout California. Each Cyclist is required to raise a minimum of $3,000, but most raise much more. Since its inception in 2001, AIDS/LifeCycle has raised more than $100 million and helped educate thousands of people about HIV/AIDS.

Like training to ride, fundraising is a skill that can be learned. Each participant is assigned a Participant Representative that can help devise a plan to meet and exceed your fundraising goal!

We want to make your fundraising as easy as possible for you, and we have provided some great tools to help you get the job done! Through it all, your Participant Representative will be there to provide assistance any time you need it! Learn more




Your fundraising can be a success story! With creativity and some persistence, you will find that it is possible to reach your goals and beyond. We’re working on collecting some inspiring stories from your fellow participants to illustrate just how it can be done. Have a story of your own you want to share? Contact your Participant Rep to find out how.
