The public is invited to join in the closing ceremonies for the 11th Annual Ride for AIDS Chicago (RFAC), Sun., July 13, 4 to 6 p.m., Evanston Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave., Evanston. The ceremonies recognize more than 400 riders, crew and volunteers -- LGBT, straight, young and older – who have come together for the 11th Annual Ride for AIDS Chicago (RFAC), biking 200 miles in two-days.

Including this year’s event, RFAC has raised more than $3.25 million to fund HIV testing, medical case management, counseling, and myriad support services and resources to Chicago area residents at risk for or living with HIV/AIDS. Ride for AIDS Chicago has a goal of using 100% of pledged donations benefit Chicago-based not-for-profit Test Positive Awareness Network (TPAN), and this year’s partner agencies Fred Says, Chicago House, and About Face.

Emcee for the ceremonies is Sean Lewis, EMMY award-winning WGN-TV news anchor/reporter. Highlights of the ceremonies include the riderless bike procession honoring the people who have lost their lives to AIDS, the procession of ride finishers, live music by Sway Chicago, short remarks, and more.
