At the conclusion of this year’s ride, Kiehl’s will have raised $1.6 million for amfAR, since 2010, funding eight cure-related research projects.

It is estimated that nearly 21,000 people are living with HIV/AIDS in Connecticut, including nearly 1,000 people in Hartford

In 1996, Kiehl’s made HIV/AIDS a key philanthropy pillar.
