      Southern Tier AIDS Program's 21t annual Ride for Life

      Calling all Cyclists for the 21st Annual AIDS “Ride for Life”, September 7th!
      Ithaca, NY - The 21st Annual “AIDS Ride for Life” is the Southern Tier AIDS Program's largest
      fundraiser, attracting 400+ riders from 20+ states in the USA, Canada and other countries. This Ride around Cayuga Lake delivers a life-changing experience for many of participants from all back-grounds and fitness levels. Cyclists and volunteers are united by a common desire to do something altruistic. Whether you are a first time rider or a seasoned veteran, we want you with us at the 21st Annual AIDS Ride for Life.
      STAP is serving record numbers along with caring for clients who have HIV/AIDS – still an epidemic. The rise of opioid use has increased the demand for our Opioid Overdose Prevention Program. Last year, over 365 lives were saved with Narcan kits distributed by STAP staff. The money raised helps close funding gaps within these programs and others.
      Various routes are available for Riders – 14, 25, 42, 90 and 102 miles, finishing via the Black
      Diamond Trail. Sign up now, or for more details about the Ride: aidsrideforlife.org/riders
      Cynthia Rotella, Event Coordinator for the Ride, says “The Ride is a Fun Is Mandatory event! We want cyclists, group riders, and indoor cyclists to join us! This Ride provides much needed resources to help to fill in funding gaps within some of STAP’s program and services that include HIV preven-tion, and opioid overdose prevention.”
