Cancelled: Volunteer with Bridgemen: “On Your Knees!” at National AIDS Memorial Grove

**San Francisco AIDS Foundation is deeply committed to preserving the health and wellbeing of our community. We are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) in San Francisco. Following current guidance from the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) as of 3/12/20, this event has been canceled this week. Please check back next week for updates.**

First conceived in 1988, the National AIDS Memorial Grove in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park is a dedicated space where those touched by AIDS can gather to heal, hope and remember. Its mission is to provide, in perpetuity, a place of remembrance so that the lives of all those who have died from AIDS are not forgotten, and that their story is known by future generations.

Join the Bridgemen for a day of community service as we once again work alongside the Grove’s staff to beautify this beloved area. This is our second of 2 work days for 2019, and we’re thrilled to be a part of this project! Duties may include: clearing weeds and debris, mulching and hauling topsoil, planting new trees and shrubs, and other related activities.

A breakfast of coffee, juice, bagels and fruit will be provided prior to the event. Afterwards, a sandwich buffet luncheon will be provided that we can enjoy together in this beautiful setting.

Gloves and tools will be provided. Please wear sturdy shoes and sun protection. Jeans and long-sleeve shirts are suggested as poison oak and blackberry bushes are prevalent. All volunteers will be required to complete a Workday Release Form, available on-site on the service day.

Please also wear a Bridgemen T-shirt if you have one.

If you have questions about this event, please contact Bridgemen Coordinator Alex Ray on Meetup, by email at aray@sfaf.org or by cell phone at 415-533-9733.

Our next urban hike will be across the iconic and world-famous Golden Gate Bridge and back.

(Bring Your Own Lunch), so please arrive with your food and beverage, ready to go. From there we’ll walk across the bridge to the Marin side. Once across, we will walk down under the bridge over to a large grassy area at Fort Baker, where we will enjoy our picnic lunch together (we’ll bring some picnic blankets to sit on). After lunch, we’ll make our way back across.

Though at approximately 5.5 miles this hike is a little longer than others we’ve done, it’s mostly flat. The Golden Gate Bridge Welcome Center is accessible by Muni bus line #28.

Things to bring:

  • Food and drink for yourself. Remember to bring plenty of water to stay hydrated!
  • Sunscreen and/or a hat.
  • Jacket and/or layers if it’s chilly.

AIDS/LifeCycle

Since the coronavirus emergency started, The Los Angeles LGBT Center and San Francisco AIDS Foundation have been monitoring the guidance of public health officials in order to determine what would be the best course of action to keep our Riders, Roadies and community as safe and healthy as possible. 

Given the recent guidance that limits public gatherings for an indeterminate amount of time, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the AIDS/LifeCycle 2020 event. Find out more at aidslifecycle.org. 

AIDS/LifeCycle is a fully supported, 7 day, 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles, co-produced by and benefiting San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. The event raises awareness about the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic and funds services such as HIV testing, prevention, care, and much more. Join as a Rider, a Roadie or a Virtual Cyclist.
