Riding To End AIDS With Ann Britton

Ann Britton is a Novato local, loyal friend to Old Town, and very talented Graphic Designer. We're going to help her as much as possible with dialing in her bike necessities for the AIDS LIFECYCLE RIDE from San Francisco to Los Angeles, while hopefully, the Novato Community can help her out with the fund-raising.

Here's a few words from Ann about the ride...
"I've decided to do the AIDS/LifeCycle.
This ride will be a challenge for me, a novice bicyclist – it's 80 miles a day, 7 days in a row, 545 miles in all. But what better way to support those challenged by HIV/AIDS than to physically challenge myself. Please help me support the San Francisco AIDS Foundation by giving what you can. All donations are tax deductible.
Visit Ann's Aids/Lifecycle Page HERE to make a contribution.
