Forged from the legacy of TPAN's Ride for Life Chicago event, Victory Lap Chicago is a movement-based fundraising event that provides critical support to TPAN's life-empowering programs and services for people affected by HIV/AIDS. Victory Lap Chicago is a reimagined version of Ride for Life Chicago (RFLC), TPAN's most profitable fundraising event for almost 20 years. As a two-day, 200-mile cycling event, RFLC raised more than $1.5 million to support HIV/AIDS-related services throughout the Chicago region.
Victory Lap Chicago is a reimagined version of RFLC that will happen on Saturday, September 23. The event will be more inclusive, with distances ranging from 25 to 100 miles. Participants can bike, walk, run, or move along the route in any way they want. Victory Lap Chicago will raise money to support TPAN's programs and services, like HIV testing, mental health services, support groups, and a drop-in center for LGBTQIA+ youth.
For the first time, the event route will exclusively take place solely in Chicago. This will raise awareness about HIV/AIDS throughout the city. It is part of Victory Lap Chicago's goal to be more inclusive and encourage broader involvement, resulting in a greater impact on Chicago.
Like its predecessor, RFLC, Victory Lap will bring together thousands of donors and hundreds of volunteers, participants, and advocates. This will ensure that nearly 1,500 people each year have access to TPAN's care and services at no cost.
