Why I Walk

Nick Vermane

Nick Vermane

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! Please support me by making a donation here to AIDS Walk New York.

I am raising money for GMHC and AIDS Walk NY because my family has been directly affected by the disease, which took my Aunt Lorraine when I was very young.

His sister’s infection and subsequent illness and death deeply and profoundly affected my father. All throughout growing up, my dad always stressed the importance of finding better treatments and finding a cure to this disease. He brought my sisters and I with him when he volunteered for organizations that helped and mentored foster kids who had been infected early in their lives, educated us about the stigmas involved with the disease, and taught us that this was a cause worth anyone’s time, energy and money.

I walk for my aunt. I walk for my father. I walk for my grandmother, who still grieves. I walk for myself- for my community, for the hope for a cure, and for the hope that both the disease and the stigma against those infected will continue to lessen and eventually be a thing of the past.

Please give what you can. Thank you!
