Welcome First-year Riders
Welcome to PWA's Friends For Life Bike Rally! By registering to ride in 2017, you've chosen to embark on what we know will be an incredible journey.

As the Fundraising Committee Co-Leads for Bike Rally 19, we are here to help as we work toward our common goal of raising as much money as we can to support the work of the Toronto People with AIDS Foundation.

To that end, today we're announcing a special fundraising incentive designed exclusively for you, first-year riders:
Receive an official Bike Rally 2016 jersey
All First-year Riders who raise $500 between now and January 31 will receive a Bike Rally 2016 cycling jersey.

Official jersey 2016 GivingTuesday (November 29) followed by World AIDS Day (December 1) began the season of fellowship and giving. Congratulations to those of you who took advantage of the opportunity to get a head start on your fundraising. It is the time of year when many people are thinking about year-end giving so now is the time to reach out to your family, friends, co-workers - anyone within your circle of acquaintances - and ask them to support your remarkable commitment to PWA. Kick-starting your fundraising early will create momentum to encourage others to donate. It will provide much needed funds for PWA that they can use immediately. And, it will help you achieve your fundraising goal that much sooner!

This is your chance to receive a shiny new Bike Rally jersey to wear on your first Training Ride next spring.
