Annual Fundraisers & Community events
2019 Red Ribbon Ride
Red Ribbon Ride 2019 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 will be held on August 16 - 18, 2019, traveling from Minneapolis to Forest Lake, Camp One Heartland Center, and ending in Duluth.
Saturday night we will be staying 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 will features 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). Transportation from Duluth to Minneapolis will be available.
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.
