Online event funds raised to date

Welcome to Mark McClelland's Page

Dear friends and family,

Thanks to all of you who supported the cause last year. You helped further the advance towards a cure, put food on the table for low-income clients, and got more people into treatment and out of fear around their HIV.

It is with a heavy heart that I ask again because much of the progress we have made is now at risk. The Trump administration is launching an attack on the AIDS Community in many ways: cutting scientific research leading to a real cure by 17%, rolling back Medicaid and repealing the Affordable Care Act preventing people with pre-existing conditions from getting basic health care, and cutting the Social Security Disability program on which many people rely for daily expenses. They even are cutting HIV prevention by 19% resulting in 1 million fewer HIV tests. Life for low-income people is hard enough already in this expensive area, and the outlook is looking worse.


This year's walk directly benefits the most vulnerable and is a lifeline to many: funding meals delivered to home-bound patients, care for seniors with HIV at SF General Hospital , disability and job retraining counseling for those on public assistance, and direct emergency checks for people in crisis (helping pay doctor visit copays, the phone bill, utilities, etc).

Some of the money I raise goes to our non-profit that provides low cost massage and healing self-esteem retreats for low-income people. We are an all-volunteer organization so know that almost all the money you donate will go directly to clients.


The walk is not just about the money this year, it's our march for solidarity as a community who has survived for so many years and is rising to action once again. We walk for those who can't and won't stand to let our friends suffer again. Many on my team are long-term survivors of HIV and you will be standing with us helping us hold our heads up high. Join us in spirit and help show our strength!

Please donate this year. Any amount is appreciated and it all adds up. And it's tax-deductible.

Deepest thanks

Mark
