We invite you to join us for the E=mc2 5K / 10K Bike Ride, a Tampa Bay AIDS Walk Event benefitting EPIC (Empath Partners in Care)! 

Great thing about going virtual is that anyone, anywhere can participate! Run on the beach, bike in your neighborhood, run on your treadmill or just stroll in the park.
