Ride for AIDS Chicago (RFAC) is a two-day, 200-mile bicycling event produced by TPAN (Test Positive Aware Network.) This year is on track to surpass 2012's record breaking fundraising total of $640,000. RFAC is TPAN's largest single fundraiser of the year, raising critical unrestricted funds for HIV programs and services at TPAN and its community partners. RFAC's mission is to be a catalyst for change in the HIV/AIDS community by raising vital funds for those living with or at risk for HIV while simultaneously fighting the shame and stigma associated with HIV.
