The money goes where it is supposed to. The NorCal AIDS Cycle (NCAC) prides itself on giving over 60% of the money raised, directly to HIV/AIDS services. Other AIDS rides that are MUCH larger give less than 20% to those in need - to me that's appalling and absolutely defeats the purpose.

This is my second year riding the NCAC. The support around the ride and the community it develops within the ride is absolutely unmatched. After the first year alone I developed friendships that I will have for a lifetime. Riding the NCAC was one of the most important experinces of my life.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I work with HIV + individuals and I understand the need for services. The urgency for financially supporting HIV/AIDS has plummeted while HIV rates increase. This is an extremely important event that directly benefits those in need.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get more people to ride the NCAC and inform those who participate in fundraising for other HIV/AIDS rides about where the majority of their money goes.

This has been my third year of involvement with the NorCal AIDS Cycle. My first year was as a crew member and the past two years as a rider.

As a person who has lived with HIV, I have been so happy to participate in this particular event and be able to see where my money is going to in terms of services in the Sac Valley area. I know that 80 - 85% of the monies raised is going to where it is needed most..... to our local providers.

NCAC is like a family all pulling together for one common goal. We come from all walks of life for this cause and it is a beautiful, beautiful thing! I am signed up for next year, and would not miss it for anything.

I got to be part of a group that raised over a quarter of a million dollars this year to help educate folks and fight HIV/AIDS!

Personal growth I have experienced by being part of this selfless machine working to help prevent the spread of AIDS/HIV in the Sacramento Valley area. Not to mention the physical benefits I have received through cycling. The group has been awesome in the encouragement and support department as far as supporting one another.

I am a nurse practitioner tkaing care of people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. THis population has a great many needs that are not met by traditional venues of income. THis bike ride the NORCAL AIDS CYCLE raised $250.000 lasy year with it's one hundred cyclists to put funds to prevention/outeach/services for those on the fringe with HIV. IT is a group that is committed to providing and cycling. What a great combination. THis is just what the Sacramento Valley needs as all of these funds stay local. Very little money is spent on the ride itself. We take great pride in the amount of raised funds that go directly to client needs.
