HIV has not gone away - infection rates particularly among youth are rising. 

Youth aged 13 to 24 accounted for an estimated 26% of all new HIV infections in the United States in 2010.
Over 50% of youth with HIV in the United States do not know they are infected.

The mission of the NorCal AIDS Cycle is to support the organizations throughout Northern California, with an emphasis on the Greater Sacramento Valley, that are working to end the HIV/AIDS pandemic and care for those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS in our region.

The goals of the NCAC are to:

  • Raise funds to support HIV/AIDS-related services within the inland Northern California region;
  • Raise awareness about the benefitting organizations and their services within the area;
  • Increase awareness of the needs throughout the community by increasing participation in the NCAC;
  • Encourage a positive environment for the dignity, quality of life, and acceptance of people affected by and infected with HIV/AIDS

Over the past twelve years the NorCal AIDS Cycle has raised over 2.5 million dollars for HIV/AIDS related non-profit agencies in the Sacramento and Northern California Region.
