On July 13, 2019, don a cowboy or cowgirl hat and hit the trail with fellow fundraisers for a two-hour ride in the beautifull hills of Glendale, California.

About The Life Group LA
The Life Group LA (www.thelifegroupla.org), a non-profit organization that was founded in 2005, provides free of charge, much needed information and emotional support through medical forums, emotional support groups and the POZ Life Weekend Seminar. All services are offered in a non-judgmental and safe environment with compassion and understanding. Safety, respect and confidentiality are the cornerstones of our philosophy. We accomplish this by providing trained support group facilitators for our emotional support groups and our POZ Life Weekend Seminar. These facilitators have been trained in the art of active listening and conduct themselves with empathy and compassion.
The Life Group LA is a powerful coalition of people focused on the spiritual, emotional and physical well-being of people living with HIV and those who support them through education, empowerment and emotional support. Their work is to assist people so that they may make informed choices and decisions regarding their healthcare and personal well-being.
In a time when HIV has surpassed its 35th year and new HIV infections continue to occur on a daily basis, we must continue to work towards achieving zero new HIV infections.
The Life Group LA was honored in 2016 with “City of Los Angeles” proclamations by Mayor Eric Garcetti. The City of West Hollywood also honored the organization in 2016 with a “Commendation” proclamation. In 2006, 2009 and 2010, Saddle Up LA won the Weho Awards for Outstanding Community Event!
