The Ride For Aids Chicago is a charity event that takes riders from Chicago to the Wisconsin countryside and back over the course of two days and this year it raised over $700,000.

We met some amazing people along the way and here are some of their stories.

Directed, Produced and Edited by John Gress
With production assistance by Marcus White, Richard Cordova, Chenge Chando & Michael Dentato.
