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

Although we have made great strides in fighting HIV/AIDS, we do not yet have a cure, new infection rates are still too high at 30,000 each year nationwide, and too many people living with HIV don’t have access to basic resources they need to survive and stay healthy.

The funds we raise benefit ACRIA, Positive Resource Center, Project Open Hand, and dozens of other tri-state area AIDS service organizations. These groups serve as a lifeline to thousands of people living with the disease in need of medical care, food, counseling, housing assistance, and much more. AIDS Walk San Francisco funding also powers prevention programs as well as critical efforts to demand a cure.

Here are additional statistics that show HIV/AIDS is still a threat here in the U.S.:
- One in eight of those infected with HIV is unaware of their infection.
- Nationally, about one in four new HIV infections are among youth, ages 13-24.
- According to a 2016 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, if current HIV diagnosis rates persist, about half of all gay black men and a quarter of gay Latino men in the U.S. will be infected with HIV in their lifetime.

Please join me with your donation now. Many thanks!
