Joanie Juster's Walking Again

After so many years of participating in AIDS Walk San Francisco - since 1988 - why do I still walk?

* I walk in memory of all those lives were cut short by AIDS. Their deaths represent an incalculable loss, and we will not forget them.

* I walk in support of all those still living with the challenges of HIV/AIDS, in hopes of making their lives brighter, healthier, and longer. AIDS is not over, and they still need our help.

* I walk in honor of all the volunteers, researchers, doctors, nurses, fundraisers, caregivers, families, neighbors, and friends who have devoted countless hours, years, decades to fighting this epidemic. It has been an honor to work alongside you all these years.

* I walk for all my nieces and nephews, and young people everywhere, to encourage them to stay healthy, to practice compassion, and to help take care of themselves and their community.

* I walk in the hope that one day soon a cure will be found, and this epidemic will become history. We are getting closer each day.

The money we raise through AIDS Walk provides medical care, meals, housing assistance, advocacy, and more to thousands of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS throughout the Bay Area. Each year I walk in particular to benefit AIDS Emergency Fund, which is now partnered with another outstanding organization, Positive Resource Center. Together, AEF & PRC have been supporting low-income people with HIV/AIDS for over three decades.

Please be as generous as you can, my friends. Consider donating a modest amount each month for the next few months. Every dollar helps!

7/13 UPDATE: Thanks to generous challenge matches in memory of my dear friend, Bruce Smith (longtime AWSF fundraiser extraordinaire), I've had to raise my goal! Thank you to everyone who has stepped up to help - your donations are being matched dollar-for-dollar. Once the matching funds are in, you will see my total DOUBLE. Thank you!

With deepest gratitude,
