Mission Viejo's Loree Glenn Finishes Grueling 545-Mile Bike Trek to Support Victims of AIDS

Newport Beach, CA (Vocus) June 30, 2010

Loree Glenn, a Mission Viejo wife and mother of two, successfully finished the grueling 545-mile AIDS/Lifecycle Ride on Saturday, June 12, 2010, as part of her efforts to help end the pandemic and human suffering caused by AIDS. This is the third year Loree has successfully completed the trip and the third year the Newport Beach Personal Injury Attorneys of BISNAR CHASE have sponsored her efforts. Loree exceeded her fund raising goal by 27.5% this year.

The AIDS/Lifecycle Ride raises funds to support the HIV/AIDS services of the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center and the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, as well as to increase awareness and knowledge about HIV/AIDS among the ride's participants, donors and the general public. This year's trek began in San Francisco on June 6 and ended in Los Angeles on June 12, with thousands of riders joining the cause as they pushed their way over hundreds of miles of terrain, including California's scenic Pacific Coast Highway 1.

"I am so thankful for everyone's tremendous support throughout my journey," said Loree. "From my loving and caring family to my close friends to my official sponsor, BISNAR CHASE, for its monetary contributions, I am blessed to have the people in my life support this cause, to help put a stop to this terrible disease."

Loree said her journey was extremely meaningful this year given the fact that there are currently 1.1 million Americans living with HIV, the highest number in the history of the pandemic.

"With the current economic climate and the way many philanthropic organizations are struggling, I was determined to push myself as hard as I could to raise as much money as I did this year."

While Loree was much better prepared for this year's ride compared to rides in past years, she still had to overcome obstacles to finish the race, including traversing a series of gigantic hills known as the "Evil Twins" and the "Quadbuster." Other riders had their fair share of challenges too, including Loree's tent mate who suffered from dehydration along the way.

On Day One of the ride, Loree biked more than 79 miles through rain and fog, ending the first exhausting leg of her journey in scenic Santa Cruz, California.

On Day Two, she racked up the most mileage of any day of the trek, biking more than 107 miles over 12 hours through vineyards and strawberry and artichoke fields.

Loree completed 67 miles on Day Three, a ride that included the dreaded "Quadbuster" hill, made especially challenging given the 100-plus miles she'd biked the day before.

She reached the "Halfway to LA" stop on Day Four, a journey that began in Paso Robles and ended in Santa Maria, for a total of 97.7 miles over twisting terrain wrought with potholes and uneven gravel roads. This leg of the trek included two enormous, back-to-back hills dubbed the "Evil Twins."

On Day Five -- known as "Red Dress" day -- Loree biked nearly 68 miles, half of which were spent fighting strong headwinds that almost brought her to a complete stop, even while pedaling downhill. Red Dress day is when every rider wears red to represent a giant AIDS ribbon blowing in the wind, as the cyclists make their way through this particularly blustery section of the course.        

Loree biked almost 86 miles on Day Six, from Lompoc to Ventura, through Gaviota Pass and into the beautiful towns of Santa Barbara, Montecito and Carpinteria.

Day Seven saw the end of Loree's grueling journey after biking a final leg of almost 62 miles. She crossed the finish line in Westwood, California where her husband and her two sons were there to greet her and to offer her their congratulations.        

"Following Loree throughout this journey and witnessing the support of her family and friends to help her achieve her goals has been extremely motivational," said John Bisnar of the BISNAR CHASE law firm. "This is a prime example of what one person can do, as an activist, to make a difference in the lives of millions of people. We're proud to be Loree's sponsor this year, and we look forward to being her sponsor in future ALC rides."

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“Great Lawfirm – My sister Kristen in Chicago made the recommendation. Everyone has been great. I really don't think anything could have been done better.”

“I could not recommend Bisnar & Chase highly enough! Now, I must be forthcoming and tell you that I am writing this review on behalf of my wonderful mother. You see, she's a mom, and therefor [sic] by nature is completely unable to do even the most simple of tasks on the internet. Like writing a a Yelp review. But we all love our moms don't we? Yes. We all love our moms (except Charles Manson), and would do anything to make sure they are protected and well taken care of. Upon referral from my mother's coworker, we contacted Bisnar & Chase. They had done a great job in this previous case and were located extremely close to both UCI and home, which made stopping by their office very convenient for my Mom. My Mom had been in an auto accident, nothing crazy but not a mere fender bender, and suffered what we thought to be some minor whiplash. Months later this was definitely not the case. Her client experience with the associates at Bisnar & Chase was so impressive that she raved to me about every time she heard anything from them. How thorough they were. How they listened better than I did (or something to that effect). How she liked Shannon and Mr. Bisnar and felt that they really had her best interests at heart. I honestly couldn't get her to shut up about them. But as a daughter that last part was all that I needed to hear to know that I we had found the right people and I could sleep easy at night knowing my Mom was in good hands. The Bisnar & Chase team really went above and beyond my family's expectations. And for that I am extremely grateful. If you live in the Newport Beach/Irvine/Costa Mesa/General Orange County area I would highly recommend Bisnar & Chase to both friends, and family.”
