Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! Please support me by making a donation here to AIDS Walk San Francisco. Since the beginning of the epidemic 40 million people worldwide have died of HIV, 700,000 in the USA and 20,000 in SF. I am the Co-Chair of the Board of the National AIDS Memorial in Golden Gate Park. I have been on the Board for 9 years. The National AIDS Memorial is responsible for the beautiful 10 acre National AIDS Memorial Grove next to Nancy Pelosi Drive near the California Academy of Sciences. The National AIDS Memorial was established by the US Congress in 1996 under the leadership of Speaker Emerita Pelosi. Please visit the Memorial website at www.aidsmemorial.org The Memorial has many dynamic programs which require your support. I was on the team which brought the AIDS Memorial Quilt back to SF in 2019. We have developed a major program, Change the Pattern, which brings the Quilt and a focus on social justice to many southern states where there has been an increasing incidence of HIV. The National AIDS Memorial is now working on developing a Center for Health and Social Justice which will be the home of the AIDS Memorial Quilt. The Center will focus on health and social justice and tell the story of AIDS which provides insight into how our health care system functions. The Covid epidemic has also provided important learning. I hope you will help me raise money for the SF AIDS Walk which will mainly go to support the Grove, Quilt and the development of the Center. Thank you. Tom
