AIDS Walk 2012
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page and I urge you to please support me and The Albany Damien Center as I participate in AIDS Walk 2012
The goal of AIDS Walk is to support organizations providing HIV/AIDS awareness, prevention education, counseling and testing and care services for people living with HIV/AIDS. The funds raised here will go toward direct services to hundreds of men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS in the Capital Region of New York.
Why We Walk
- Since 1981, over 600,000 Americans have died of AIDS.
- Every 9 1/2 minutes, someone in the U.S becomes infected with HIV.
- Approximately 20% of people infected with HIV do not know it.
- As of December 1, 2008, approximately 116,000 New Yorkers were reported living with either HIV or AIDS and NYS remained the epicenter of the AIDS epidemic, with 16 percent of all people living with AIDS nationally.
Thank you for your support!
