Riding for life

n 1996, Jean Kammerer ’85 visited the AIDS quilt in Washington, D.C. “I saw so many lives on display,” she said. “I was especially touched by the children who are affected by this illness.” Kammerer, who rides her bike nearly every chance she gets, had read about AIDS rides in cycling magazines. She knew, after visiting the quilt, that she needed to do something about HIV/AIDS.

Kammerer combined her desire to help others with her love for cycling and signed up for the California AIDS ride in 1998. Earlier this year, she rode 350 miles in four days in the Washington, D.C. ride. In September, Jean plans to ride from Boston to New York. The cyclists, who average about 80 miles a day, raise money for the cause through pledges. “As you can see there was a helmet decoration,” she said. “Mine was Mimi Bobeck from The Drew Carey Show. It made long days easier.”

Jean uses her web page to help inform visitors about AIDS. “The more information offered about these events, the more help is generated for those in need,” she said.
