Sponsor/join me for the NY AIDS Walk!
Bender · 10 years, 5 months ago
I have formed a team for the 2007 New York AIDS Walk. Now, I just need two things -- team members and sponsors!
The walk is on Tuesday, May 20 and my team goal is to raise $5000. I know it's lofty, but if the team gets members that start working together, we can do it!
Here is some information that they've put together:
"Even though there has been a lot of publicity about drug treatments which are prolonging some people's lives, they don't work for everyone and there is still no cure in sight. Moreover, young people are still getting infected at alarmingly high rates.
GMHC and about 40 other AIDS organizations in the area get the money from the AIDS Walk. It's clear that we need more services and more prevention programs than ever before.
A few facts you may want to know:
~AIDS Walk New York is the world's largest AIDS fundraising event.
~AIDS Walk New York stands out as a model of community action and cost-efficient fundraising. The priority has always been to have the money raised go directly to vital services to help people living with HIV or AIDS.
~AIDS Walk New York benefits GMHC (Gay Men's Health Crisis), the nation's oldest and most comprehensive AIDS Service organization. The organization's staff of 189 and 7,000 dedicated volunteers provide services to more than 15,000 men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS and their families.
~A portion of the net proceeds from the AIDS Walk also goes to dozens of other AIDS organizations within the tri-state area."
