Red Ribbon Ride

Over 125 people participated on the 2019 Red Ribbon Ride, and each participant has been impacted by the disease of HIV in some way. Maybe they lost a family member, a best friend or are HIV positive themselves. And each person made a commitment to volunteer, ride, raise money, serve lunch, dinner or breakfast, get up at 4am to deliver ice or make coffee! We rode to honor yesterday, embolden today and build a tomorrow for all those living with HIV/AIDS.

Red Ribbon Ride is a fully supported 3 day, 200 mile bicycle ride from Minneapolis to Duluth, to raise vital funds for HIV/AIDS services, treatment, prevention and awareness. This year’s Ride was held on August 16 – 18, 2019, with riders travelling from Minneapolis to Forest Lake, Camp One Heartland Center, and ending in Duluth. 

Saturday night we stayed at Camp One Heartland Center, a beautiful sleepaway camp in North Central MN creating life-changing camp experiences for youth facing social isolation, intolerance or serious health challenges, including HIV. 

This three-day ride featured onsite housing and delicious home cooked meals, options for camping and all of the beauty and fun One Heartland has to offer (campfire, hiking, swimming, canoeing, goats). 

The Red Ribbon Ride benefits 5 HIV/AIDS service agencies here in Minnesota; African American AIDS Task Force, Hope House of St. Croix Valley, One Heartland, Rural AIDS Action Network and The Aliveness Project. Whether you are first time participant, experienced veteran, looking for a physical challenge, cycling through Minnesota or have a connection to the cause the Red Ribbon Ride is for you. Join us. Make your difference.
