Loans that Change Lives, and Bike Rides that Change Lives Too

Team Kiva: Loans That Change Lives
at the California AIDS/LifeCycle

The annual AIDS/LifeCycle commences in less than two weeks and this year a valiant group of nine super-cyclists will represent the Kiva community as Team Kiva: Loans That Change Lives!

Team Kiva will ride alongside approximately 2,100 fellow cyclists on a 545-mile journey from San Francisco to Los Angeles over seven days. The itinerary ranges from 60 to 110 miles per day. Team Kiva consists of three Kivans (one staff member and two interns) and six incredible friends.

Here’s our team’s official page: Team Kiva: Loans That Change Lives

For general info on the event: AIDS/LifeCycle

We are ecstatic to represent the Kiva community and grateful for its support on our adventure! Please contact JD with any comments or questions.

Also, we are gathering at Bender's on South Van Ness (between 19th St. and 20th St.) on Thursday, May 27th at 5:30pm. Feel free to stop by and celebrate with us.

We're proud to represent you in this vital effort to raise awareness for HIV/AIDS! To that end, we will be wearing a limited edition Kiva jersey, which we hope to make available to the Kiva Community in the future.
