Greetings,

Thank you very much for visiting my fund raising page.

I hope this finds you and your entire family safe, healthy and living with as much ease as humanly possible during this global COVID-19 pandemic.

I am fund raising for AIDS Walk New York which is this Sunday, June 7th. This year because of the pandemic, AIDS Walk New York will be a virtual one.

I am reaching out to you for your support. Can you please sponsor me today @ ny.aidswalk.net/JackDavidMarcus

I have had a long term history and direct relationship with HIV AIDS fighters and their families; and that’s why I’ve actively participated in virtually every AIDS Walk New York since the beginning. From the early 1980’s through the early 1990’s, I worked on a daily basis with HIV AIDS fighters and their family members. I witnessed first hand the virulent, cruel and vicious effects of that syndrome on human beings. I was an integral part of a company which provided home IV nutritional and antibiotic therapies to AIDS fighters. These patients, who virtually were all gay men, could not absorb calories by mouth and/or needed IV antibiotic therapies. This wretched disease ravaged their bodies, souls and often ended their mostly young lives. We provided those home IV therapies which allowed AIDS fighters to be discharged from hospitals and/or to remain at home.

Many years ago, I was part of a small committee in our B’nai Jeshurun synagogue that along with the support of our Rabbis and Cantor, organized AIDS Walk teams year after year. Over the years our BJ community cumulatively raised several hundred thousand dollars in support of GMHC.

AIDS Walk New York is the largest single-day AIDS fundraising event in the world. In its over 30 years, AIDS Walk New York has inspired nearly 890,000 people to walk and millions more to donate, raising nearly $150 million to combat HIV and AIDS.

New York City has one of the largest populations of people living with HIV and AIDS in the U.S. – more than 100,000.

Together, we can turn these numbers around. Will you please sponsor me for AIDS Walk New York? Funds raised benefit GMHC, Hyacinth AIDS Foundation and dozens of other tri-state area AIDS service organizations that work to prevent new infections and ensure HIV-positive people get the care they need.

Thank you very much.

With gratitude, appreciation, care and abrazos muy grandes.

Jack David
