By way of the FOX | HBCU Media Alliance, we are proud to have partnered with Kaiser Foundation’s Greater Than Aids campaign to participate in the AIDS/LifeCycle (ALC) 2013 - a seven-day cycling event from San Francisco to Los Angeles that raises money and awareness for the fight against HIV/AIDS. ALC 2013 proved to be especially impacting as 2,203 riders and 552 volunteers raised a historic $14.2 million to aid in the fight against the disease.
As part of the sponsorship, we leveraged So You Think You Can Dance all-stars Kathryn McCormick and Neil Haskell to create a dynamic piece for the ALC closing ceremony. The SYTYCD all-stars flew to New York to team up with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center and learn “Home” – an iconic performance created by Rennie Harris that pays tribute to individuals living with HIV/AIDS as well as Alvin Ailey, the dance center’s founder, who died due to AIDS in 1989. Kathryn McCormick brought the choreography back to LA and performed part of the piece live alongside fellow SYTYCD stars Allison Holker, Marko Germar, Robert Roldan and Alex Wong at the ALC closing ceremonies.
