Orange County Ride for AIDS

Dear clubs,


            We at the AIDS Services Foundation (ASF) of Orange County were wondering if your students would be interested in volunteering at our upcoming event, the Orange County Ride for AIDS on Saturday, October 25th.

            We feel that this volunteering opportunity will be beneficial not only for ASF in its mission to help those living with HIV or AIDS, but also for student volunteers as well. Volunteering will help students get involved in the community, which is beneficial when applying to college/grad school, and high school students can earn hours toward the community service requirement for graduation.

            This year the Orange County Ride for AIDS will be held at the beautiful William R. Mason Regional Park in Irvine. Volunteers will be helping run the registration booth, parking, cheering and food stations, pit-stops along the route, and with the loading and unloading of the event truck. This is an all-day event, and there are various volunteer shifts available throughout the day (early morning, afternoon, and evening).

            We would greatly appreciate the added help and support of your students. If you have any questions or interested students, please email Thom Chapman at the ASF volunteer office:


Thank you for your time and consideration,


Thom Chapman
