The NYC Gay Men's Chorus has participated in fund raisers for GMHC since its founding, and have walked and sung in every AIDS Walk since the first, raising over $200,000 in the last 5 years alone. We are so excited about the event and want to do as much as we can to make a difference in the lives of people living with HIV and AIDS. We have set an ambitious fundraising goal of $25,000 and need your help reaching it again this year! AIDS Walk New York, the world's largest single-day AIDS fundraising event, benefits GMHC and more than 40 other AIDS service organizations in the tri-state area. GMHC is the nation's oldest and most comprehensive AIDS service organization, serving approximately 15,000 people living with HIV and AIDS each year. The organization reaches countless more locally and nationally, through its prevention and advocacy work. Although there has been some success with drug treatments and their ability to prolong the lives of those living with HIV/AIDS, they do not work for everyone, nor are they accessible to everyone. These treatments can take their toll physically, mentally, and financially. We are also concerned by the alarming rate of new HIV infections in the New York City youth. Thank you for supporting AIDS Walk New York and for helping put an end to this epidemic. Visit our website for more info on the Chorus, our mission and to show us your support:
