I can't tell you how proud I am of my friend Janisis. For the second year, she is a roadie for the AIDS Lifecycle ride. Here is the page where she describes what this entails and what it means to her.
I wanted to insert just a small quote from her description
"I want to tell you about how much fun it is, but the term 'fun' doesn't begin to cover the emotion ... it's so much more than fun... it's deeply rewarding, enormously satisifying, hugely gratifying... joyous service."
Please take a moment, go to her page and write her a note of encouragement - donate if you can to support her in this effort.
