Origin: The idea of connecting the biggest International AIDS Conferences came to existence from AIDS 2006 Toronto, when B’Care for the first time formulated 'AIDS RIDE 2008', a complete bicycle ride that connected AIDS 2006 & AIDS 2008, on 52 days including 8 resting days!
The aims and objectives of AIDS Ride 2014 are as follows:
1) To raise awareness about HIV/AIDS, 2) To counter stigma and discrimination, thereby promoting and protecting human rights, and more specifically to embody in our actions the theme of the 20th International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2014), 3) To bridge the geographical space between the 19th International AIDS Conference (Washington DC, United States) and the 20th International AIDS Conference (Melbourne, Australia) and 4) Fundraising
NOTE: BCARE's ‘AIDS Ride’ is an incredible journey of People living with HIV/AIDS and affected from one International AIDS Conference to the another International AIDS Conference or it's a geographic connection between the two biggest International AIDS Conferences, so please be noted that 'AIDS Ride' can also use other means of transport like hot air balloon to cross the rivers, planes for an ocean, including our usual plan of ‘bicycle ride’ carried on the grounds! We may use bicycle depending on the geographic connections we make!
Attention Everyone: Our logo use of Australian flag is temporary until we build a logo. Any volunteer is welcome to design a logo for AIDS RIDE 2014, based up on the flag or National Animal etc
