Putting a spin on AIDS fundraiser

Spin to End (AIDS) 2011, an indoor cycling fundraiser to benefit Action Cycling Atlanta and AIDS vaccine research, will take place from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 12, at Emory's WoodPEC cycling studio.

Form a team with five of your friends, or join an existing team.

"Each rider spins for an hour and raises at least $100, for a team total of $600 or more. Pledges can be from friends, family, co-workers and corporations sponsoring you," says Leon Morales, co-ride director for the 2011 AIDS Vaccine 2000.

The AIDS Vaccine 200 is a two-day, 200-mile ride to raise money for the Emory Vaccine Center. Produced by Action Cycling Atlanta, this year's ride will be May 14-15.

"Spin to End is a precursor event to May's AV200," Morales says. "It's another way for Action Cycling to raise much-needed funds for vaccine research, but also a way to shine even more light on our larger event in May."

"You can also sponsor a specific participant or make a general donation by visiting the site," says Morales. He emphasizes that both serious and more recreational riders participate in the AV200 and Spin to End events.
