A new role for a new time
More than 200 bicycle riders will join Action Cycling Atlanta's 10th annual AV200 (AIDS Vaccine 200) on May 19-20. The two-day, 200-mile ride primarily benefits HIV vaccine research at the Emory Vaccine Center.
The AV200 already has raised more than $1 million for AIDS vaccine research, with the all-volunteer Action Cycling Atlanta donating 100 percent of all monies raised by participants to its beneficiaries. The event is one of the Emory Vaccine Center's principal sources of fundraising.
Emory's seven-year fundraising campaign may have ended with 2012, but it laid the groundwork for important work just getting started.
The Woodruff Health Sciences Center raised a total of $1.17 billion during the campaign, part of the $1.69 billion raised overall at Emory during the most ambitious fundraising effort in the university's history and the largest undertaken in Georgia to date. Donors invested in teaching, research, and patient care throughout the health sciences.
