200 MILES. 2 DAYS.
250+ VOLUNTEERS.
THOUSANDS OF LIVES CHANGED.

Registration is open

TPAN's Ride for Life Chicago is the only event of its kind in the Midwest to support services for people living with HIV or at risk. Cyclists ride 200 miles to raise money for the event, but there are 100-mile and 50-mile options for those that feel the need for a shorter distance. The money raised helps TPAN and community partners provide housing, healthcare, and mental health services to thousands of Chicago's vulnerable. In the 18 years since the Ride began, TPAN has delivered care to tens of thousands of individuals.
 


 
This year’s event is June 18-19. Our journey will begin in Chicago and travel along a scenic route up to Sawyer, MI where we’ll spend the night at Tower Hill Camp & Resort Center. Whether you are an experienced cyclist or haven’t been on a bicycle in years, everyone is welcome to join Ride for Life Chicago. We offer free opportunities for training, fundraising support, and a welcoming community.


With your participation in TPAN's Ride for Life Chicago, you will help us ensure that people have free access to our services, decrease the stigma around HIV/AIDS, and honor those who have passed away due to AIDS-related causes.

Ride for Life Chicago has four ways for you to get involved.

1. Ride 50-200 miles over two days
2. Join the Crew Team
3. Register as a Virtual Participant
4. Sign up to be a volunteer

Cyclists are required to raise a minimum of $1,200. Fundraising is optional for crew members, but since we're a fundraiser, we ask the crew to raise at least $500.
