I SWIM, BIKE & RUN PROUD with T2.

Hi friends!

 

Thank you for considering a donation to my 2019 Chicago Triathlon and 2019 Chicago Marathon fundraiser for T2!

 

Why do I run?

HIV and AIDS are not in the news much these days, but an estimated 28,000 people throughout Chicago are living with HIV and need equitable access to services, such as housing, health care and case management, in order to stay healthy. That's why I'm running with TEAM TO END AIDS (T2) in the Chicago Triathlon on August 25, 2019 and the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 13, 2019.

 

In 2016 alone, 839 Chicagoans were diagnosed with HIV. While this is the lowest number of new HIV transmissions in years, many more still don't know they are living with the virus. I am committed to swimming 1.5 km (0.93 mile), cycling 40 km (24.85 miles) and running 10 km (6.2 miles) at the Chicago Triathlon in August and running 26.2 miles at the Chicago Marathon in October to raise awareness and eradicate the stigma attached to HIV, all while benefiting a cause I am passionate about.

 

How?

T2 is training me to cross the finish line while raising funds to support the AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC), which connects people to the services they need and is working with other organizations throughout the state to get Illinois to reach zero new HIV transmissions by 2030.

 

Fun fact: before starting triathlon tranining in May, I did not know how to swim. While I'm still working on improving my technique (and getting the confidence to not drown in Lake Michigan in August), I'm confident that T2 will get me there. I've seen so much improvement, so far!

 

Please help me cross the finish line while helping thousands of people across Illinois! Donate to my T2 campaign today. Just click the DONATE TO ME button on the right. 

 

Feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any questions or if you're looking to get invovled.
