FACE AIDS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit student organization dedicated to mobilizing and inspiring students to fight AIDS in Africa. It was started in 2005 by a couple Stanford students who were inspired to do something about the epidemic after a trip to Zambia. The organization is now nationwide with over 250 chapters on college campuses and in high schools. Collectively, we have also raised over 2 million dollars to put toward our fight.
This summer I will be doing the FACE AIDS' Ride Against AIDS 2010, which is a cross-country bike ride to fundraise for and raise awareness about HIV/AIDS. I will be joining 5 Stanford students and one student from University of Wyoming.
I fly out to San Francisco on Thursday, June 10th and head over to Stanford in Palo Alto, CA for a couple of days of orientation and last minute preparations. And then the endeavor begins Monday, June 14th as we are sent off from campus.
