AIDS Harbor to the Bay Bike Ride

This is the 11th anniversary of Harbor to the Bay the one-day 125 or 68 mile bike ride from Boston Harbor to Provincetown Bay. This Saturday September 21st 500 riders & volunteers will make this trek to increase awareness in our community to help prevent HIV infection & to care for those already impacted by HIV/AIDS. What makes this fundraiser different is that 100% of the money goes to support organizations which advance the quality & accessibility of HIV & AIDS care. Harbor to the Bay was launched in 2003 & has raised over $3,000,000 for these organizations: Fenway Health, AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod, Community Research Initiative & AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts. Harbor to the Bay has been committed since Day 1 that 100% of all rider-received pledges will go directly to these beneficiaries. Harbor to the Bay was the brainchild Michael Tye. He created this ride so that every penny donated would go to the beneficiaries. Michael passed away at the age of 49 after a long courageous battle against Multiple Myeloma cancer just 71 days before the first ride in 2003. His brother Mark will be making the ride this year for the 11th time. This year riders will have 3 options: Ride from Boston to Provincetown, Ride from Boston to Sagamore or Ride from Sagamore to Provincetown. Jim Morgrage who helped found Harbor to the Bay is the president of the organizing committee rides as well. So if you can't ride at least sign-up & support a rider. Updates to Come...:)
