My Message

I’m SO EXCITED to finally be doing this 600 km ride from Toronto to Montreal. We’ll be riding through nearly all the towns in Ontario I’ve lived in over the years including my hometown! I hope to see you out there along the route cheering me on, along with my incredible teammates.

Why does the Friends for Life Bike Rally mean so much to me? Because HIV/AIDS has touched me directly. I have friends who are currently living with HIV/AIDS, from whom I’ve learned directly about the impact. I have other friends who have lost loved ones to HIV/AIDS, and I have witnessed the impact. I have traveled to SOS Children’s Village in Tanzania where I met and fell in love with a village full of children orphaned by AIDS and was profoundly impacted by their stories and the effect AIDS has had upon their past, present, and future.

I’m riding in memory of my sister, Catherine McIntyre, who was injured in a cycling accident, which ultimately led to her suicide on January 28, 2018. Catherine LOVED riding her bike. In the time since her death, I have found myself integrating some of her attitudes and passions into my own life. I guess it’s my way of keeping her alive inside of me. I want to continue her ride and bring her along with me on this one. She too lost friends to AIDS and I know this is something she would be proud of. Making her proud is all I ever wanted to do.

I have set a personal fundraising goal of $6000. If you feel compelled to help me smash it, I’d be ever so humbly grateful to you. There is still a great deal of stigma around HIV/AIDS and Toronto People With AIDS Foundation does great work in the effort to break those stigmas down and in support of real people in Toronto who face that stigma daily. Their powerful and humbling stories can be found on the PWA website. It’s worth it to take the time to learn more.

Please donate what you can in support of my ride and this incredible cause. 

With humble thanks,

Hi Lara, I wish you the best of luck in your run. You are such a courageous young woman and I know that Catherine would be so proud of you for doing this in her honour and for such an important cause. I'm afraid i won't be able to attend the Prescott event, however, I wanted to make a donation and support you in some way. I hope all goes well and I look forward to hearing more about your goals and accomplishments TAke care xo.
