lovers near and far! I'm Sam and I am taking over this week on behalf of the AIDS Ride for Life @rideforlife_ithaca
to show you how we see Ithaca: through 2 bike wheels and a whole bunch of miles with meaning!
I'm a 2018 @ithacacollege
grad who was fortunate enough to start working for the Southern Tier AIDS Program (STAP) the day after I graduated. I started my journey at STAP as a volunteer 3 years ago and it truly changed my life!
I am now the Assistant Coordinator for STAP's AIDS Ride for Life, a spectacular bike ride around Cayuga Lake that's celebrating its 20th year on September 8th, 2018!
Riders choose a route of 102, 90, 69, 42, 25, or 14 miles and we support them with 8 fully-loaded pit stops, prizes for all, enthusiastic volunteers, and an event dinner catered by Ithaca Bakery @ithacabakery.
The event raises money and awareness for STAP's 8 county HIV/AIDS, Opiate Overdose Prevention, and Harm Reduction programs and services.
You can learn more about us or even join us at aidsrideforlife.org or by contacting our fearless coordinator, Cyd Rotella at firstname.lastname@example.org.
