Chris Bair, the owner of Los Angeles's hip Shorty's barber shop, will soon be running through his city's busy streets, scaling the Hollywood Sign, and traversing the famous La Brea Tar Pits. And he's certainly not doing this for fun.
Bair tells Gay.net that he's taking part in the Concrete Hero challenge, a 5K urban obstacle course that will raise money for AIDS Project Los Angeles. In the vein of the San Francisco to Los Angeles LifeCycle AIDS ride, Concrete Hero participants will solicit donors to support their exhausting physical endeavor.
But L.A.'s Concrete Hero event is just one of many national LGBT and HIV-related fundraisers coming up, Bair points out. From Atlanta to Boston, there are numerous ways to get involved and help our community. Click here for more information.
