Dean Penny blessed Verger Steve Haight and his bicycle as he prepared to begin his 7-day, 545 mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise money and awareness in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
Yes, you read that correctly, 545 miles! Steve is bicycling in AIDS/LifeCycle from San Francisco to Los Angeles to make a difference in the lives of people living with HIV and AIDS.
He will average more than 75 miles per day and will sleep in tents and get up before dawn each day in order to complete the day's ride. "I'm very excited to be able to do this and am thrilled with all the support and good wishes I've received. A blessing and send off from the St. Paul's community means a lot me. You are all truly the wind at my back!"
You can track Steve's progress online and make a donation to support him in his goal to raise $13,000 to fight HIV/AIDS at his homepage athttp://www.tofighthiv.org/goto/SteveHaight
