We have made tremendous strides over the course of this 38 year pandemic. Many people are now living with undetectable viral loads because of better and more effective drugs. We now have PrEP and PEP which when used properly has an efficacy rate of near 100% in preventing HIV transmissions in situations when a person is comprised, or thinks he/she is at risk for contracting the virus. However, we still do not have the cure.

AIDS Walk New York is the largest single day AIDS fundraising event in the world. Each year thousands of people from all walks of life come together and walk unified in love and support for humanity. In its over 30 years, AWNY has inspired nearly 890,000 people to walk and millions more to donate, raising nearly $150 million to combat HIV and AIDS. The funds raised at the event remain a vital lifeline sustaining the prevention, care, and advocacy programs GMHC provides for the thousands of individuals and families affected by the disease in the tri-state area. The proceeds also benefit several HIV/AIDS service organizations that are able to participate as teams and raise funds through the Community Partnership Program (CPP).

I have been participating in AWNY since 2003 and thanks to many of you have raised about $120,000. Please help me to increase that number by supporting my campaign this year.
