Our bags are packed (or in Leah’s case, packed, unpacked, packed, unpacked, and packed again), and we’re ready to go! Tomorrow at 5AM we will be en route to LA. We went to orientation this morning and emotions are already running high – it’s going to be an amazing week, with undeniable highs and lows along the way. As we make the final preparations for our trip, we would like to take some time to say one last huge THANK YOU – for your donations, for your support, for your advice, for your kind words and warm wishes. This experience has been incredible so far and we feel so lucky to be a part of it – but we really couldn’t have done it without you.
Depending on the reliability of our solar chargers (and how much energy we can muster), we will try to update http://teamspringer.com daily. In the meantime, the rockstars who run ALC will be updating the website with photos, inspiring participant stories, articles and videos. And, true to San Francisco form, you can share in the ALC experience by following AIDS/LifeCycle on Facebook, Twitter (#ALC11) and Instagram (yes, Instagram. Oh, Bay Area).
We’ll be thinking of each and every one of you with gratitude as we make our way to LA. Your support goes beyond us to the thousands of people whose lives are impacted by HIV and AIDS.
