Concrete Hero raises money for AIDS Project Los Angeles

AIDS Project Los Angeles has a cool annual fundraiser called Concrete Hero. The event is a 5k obstacle course through Downtown Los Angeles on July 15. There are a couple ways you can help!

First, I'm racing in this crazy event on Team Kick A$$ (it's about fundraising, after all), and I would appreciate any donation you can make. $5? $10? Amazing, thank you! The donations go to prevention and education of HIV and AIDS, along with helping people living with the virus. While so many people have become desensitized to the issue, it is still an emotional, physical and financial burden to those people living with HIV and AIDS. And again, thank you for any donation you can make!

You can also be part of the event! In addition to raising money for a good cause, the event promises to be a lot of fun. You'll climb over a makeshift Hollywood sign, scramble through a "traffic jam," and even cross the La Brea tar pits (hopefully cleanly). How often do you get to race down the streets of Los Angeles with wild obstacles in the middle of the street? I think it'll be a ton of fun.

You can donate to my team here, and you can find more registration information here. Either way, thank you for supporting APLA!
