"Cover Story" piece on the controversial Pallotta TeamWorks Canada-US AIDS Vacci
"Cover Story" piece on the controversial Pallotta TeamWorks Canada-US AIDS Vaccine Ride, which will end in Portland on September 9. Of the 2,800 bicyclists organizers had hoped for, 2,067 have already registered. But since no local groups will benefit from the fundraiser, none, including the Portland-based AIDS Project, have been asked to participate in planning the event. By far the most heated criticism of Pallotta TeamWorks, however, is that it's a for-profit organization that is making a lot of money from its events. Organizer Dan Pallotta is getting rich while AIDS Ride sponsors net much less than expected and, in some cases, as little as 19 cents on the dollar.
