SFAF.org Podcast #35 - AIDS/LifeCycle fights HIV by creating awareness and health

As 3,000 riders and volunteer "roadies" made their way to Los Angeles, AIDS/LifeCycle 7 increased awareness about HIV and AIDS.  Peter Lavoie, one of the Co-Chairs of the Positive Pedalers, talks about how AIDS/LifeCycle builds knowledge about HIV and improves health for both HIV-positive and HIV-negative participants. The Positive Pedalers are a group of HIV-positive AIDS/LifeCycle participants, volunteers and staff committed to eliminating stigma through their positive public example.

Peter Lavoie is one of the Co-Chairs of the Positive Pedalers (along with Nathan Menard). He works as a software engineer at Kaiser Permanente and has been HIV-positive for 10 years. Three years ago, when he first heard the event described as "the experience of a lifetime," he scoffed. Now, he says, it's become true for him.  Being a part of AIDS/LifeCycle and the Positive Pedalers gives him a way to do something meaningful every day that resonates far beyond this annual fundraising event.
