Scope and Contents of the Materials
The Lone Star Ride Fighting AIDS (2001-2013) was an event that took place in Dallas, Fort Worth and surrounding areas in September of every year in order to raise funds for AIDS awareness, services and research. The Lone Star Ride Fighting AIDS was formed from the Tanqueray’s Texas AIDS Ride (1999-2000) through efforts from Larry Townsend, Janie Bush, Mike McKay and Don Maison. Funding for the Tanqueray's AIDS Ride became increasingly difficult due to the nature of the bike course (Dallas to Houston), along with other factors such as promotions for the event itself. The Lone Star Ride is composed of a series of programs and programming where cyclists ride across Dallas and Fort Worth to areas designated on the maps given to each rider. The Graham and Carolyn Holloway Family Foundation sponsored the event while Janie Bush was the event manager (2001-2006) for the riders. David Minehart (2007-2010) and Jerry Calumn (2011-2012) proceeded Bush as event managers. Bush, Minehart and Calumn have documented the ride over this time with video, papers and photographs which are contained in this collection. Organizations benefitting from this event included the Resource Center (formerly the Resource Center Dallas and the AIDS Resource Center), AIDS Services of Dallas and the AIDS Outreach Center of Tarrant County. The event was discontinued in 2013.
Materials in this collection date back to 2001 and into 2011. Photographs with written information illustrate the story behind the ride, planning, as well as the people involved.
