Lone Star Ride Fighting AIDS Coming Up In Irving


Irving, Texas. September 6, 2012

The Lone Star Ride Development Team is challenging North Texas businesses and supporters of the Ride to help raise $20,000 by September 20, 2012. The 150‐mile cycling event raises funds for three North Texas HIV/AIDS service organizations – AIDS Services of Dallas (ASD), AIDS Outreach Center of Tarrant County (AOC) and Resource Center Dallas (RCD).

The goal of Lone Star Ride 2012 is to give back $150K to these life‐saving organizations that provide housing, hot meals, food pantries, HIV testing, counseling and other basic needs for more than 20,000 clients with HIV/AIDS in North Texas. Many new sponsors have joined the Ride this year, including Microsoft as host of LSRFA at their facility in Las Colinas, which will be the location for both the event’s opening and closing ceremonies.

"We’re so close to reaching this year’s development goal," said LSRFA President Laura Kerr. "We hope to encourage at least 20 more businesses and individuals to join the 20/20 Challenge as a valued sponsor/donor of the only day AIDS Ride in Texas."

Those interested in helping Lone Star Ride reach its 2012 goal are encouraged to take the 20/20 Challenge as a $1K sponsor/donor of the Ride. Donations can be made online at or checks mailed to: Lone Star Ride Fighting AIDS, P.O. Box 190537, Dallas, TX 75219. Contact: Kristi Holman at 214.273.3703 or Be sure to mention 20/20 LSRFA Challenge in online & check memos.

LSRFA’s 2012 route provides an exciting bicycling tour through Dallas and Tarrant Counties, presenting the opportunity for riders and crew to make new friends, while helping North Texans impacted by HIV/AIDS. Since 2001, the LSRFA distributed more than $2 million to its three beneficiaries.
