My co-captains this year asked me to share why it is that I walk. In addition to thinking of friends and UN colleagues, here's why:

"I graduated from high school in 1986 in Vancouver, Canada, when the AIDS epidemic had grown but treatment was not yet available. Later when my neighbour - a woman in her 30s, with a young child - died of AIDS-related causes it was a catalyst for me to volunteer in AIDS Service Organizations, where I spoke in high schools, gave out condoms in bars and more. I walk to recognize that anyone can be at risk, to honour those everywhere living with and affected by HIV and to be among the activists whose work remains central to our collective goal to end AIDS."

Last year was my first as a Star Walker! Very exciting. Can you help me make the same difference again?
