Welcome to Team Invincible West - 0752's Team Page
Team Invincible West SF began in 2013, when in 2012 one of my children was diagnosed HIV+. Being scared for my child's well-being, I started to research, study, educate myself.....and support him above all else.
Where does our Team name come from? You see the moment I heard he was positive, the song, Invincible, by Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo IMMEDIATELY came to mind......We MUST DO SOMETHING, was my immediate reaction, to help. Team Invincible West San Francisco was born.
Sometimes, people become complacent until it effects one of their own. 5 years later, and after meeting 100's of AMAZING PLWH (persons living with HIV), participating in INCREDIBLE life-saving events like AIDS WALK, and remembering the memories of our loved & lost...................Life is Positive. If one of us affected....we are ALL affected.
Our team is participating in the 2017 AIDS Walk San Francisco, a 10K fundraising walk to fight the epidemic. The money we raise provides medical care, life saving medications, meals, housing assistance, advocacy, and more to thousands of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS throughout the Bay Area. Please join our team or donate today!
All donations are tax-deductible and more appreciated than you know.
Let's make 2017 the BEST!
Each year we dedicate our Walk to important and meaningful groups or by honoring loved ones.
This year will be NO different, because HIV/AIDS continues to affect us all. We will be dedicating our Walk to "getting to zero" and eliminating the spread of HIV altogether. By education, guidance for all age groups & genders, understanding that stigma related to HIV contributes to the spread of this disease, we know that we can help get to ZERO.
Because HIV affects us all....One infection is too many! With proposed potential cuts in funding, we must remember the scourge and toll this disease has taken. WE MUST NEVER FORGET those we have loved and lost.
Love you all, and God bless you! xoxo
