Illinois: Ride for AIDS Chicago Celebrates 10 Years
July 11, 2013
The Test Positive Aware Network's (TPAN's) annual 200-mile bicycle ride will celebrate its 10th anniversary on July 13-14, with more than 300 registered riders participating in the event. The riders will begin after the opening ceremony at the Chandler-Newberger Center on Northwestern University's campus in Evanston, Ill. The closing ceremony will be held from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 14, at Ingraham Park. According to Richard Cordova, TPAN's director of athletic events, the ride already has raised $560,000, which is much more than the same time last year, and he is confident that this year's ride will exceed last year's total of $638,000. The Ride for AIDS Chicago grew out of the defunct Minneapolis to Chicago AIDS Ride. So far, the top fundraising team this year is Team Chicago Urban Riders.
