Conceived by the company's history with motorcycles and its philanthropic heritage, Kiehl's LifeRide for amfAR continues the brand's commitment to supporting HIV/AIDS organizations, and heightens awareness and raises funds for amfAR's quest to end HIV/AIDS.

Chris Salgardo, Kiehl's Brand Ambassador and Kevin Robert Frost, CEO, amfAR will ride from Los Angeles to San Diego with Gilles Marini, actor, Days of Our Lives, tattoo artist Luke Wessman, top men's style influencer, Blake Scott, and music photographer Travis Shinn, rallying with the public at 8 stores along the route, where all are welcome to meet the riders, learn more about amfAR, and contribute to the non-profit.

Kiehl's will donate a total of $150,000 to amfAR over the course of this year's events and activities, and at the conclusion of this year's ride, Kiehl's LifeRide for amfAR will have ridden more than 12,000 miles since 2010, and raised more than $1.9 million, funding ten cure-related research projects.

The proceeds from the 2018 Kiehl's LifeRide for amfAR will fund a specific grant to aid the research of Dr. Gabriel Ozorowski, a scientist at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, CA.
