Georgia: AIDS Vaccine 200 Celebrates Its "Vaccine Soldiers"

August 27, 2010

Action Cycling Atlanta on Sunday presented checks totaling $198,200 to the three beneficiaries of its AIDS Vaccine 200 ride, which was held in May. The cycling organization donated $190,000 to the Emory Vaccine Center, $6,200 to Jerusalem House, and $2,000 to Positive Impact. Since its launch in 2003, the ride has raised about $765,000 for EVC. "Your passion for bike riding and for making a difference kind of come together in a wonderful way, and you make a difference for HIV/AIDS," Mark Mulligan, executive director of EVC's Hope Clinic, said during the celebration at Atlanta's Kai Lin Art gallery. "In doing this, you are all vaccine soldiers -- ambassadors -- and we certainly appreciate it." Mulligan also noted that the Hope Clinic continues to seek volunteers for several ongoing trials.
