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

I am raising funds for the National AIDS Memorial team this year at AIDS Walk San Francisco which will be on Sunday, July 17, 2022. AIDS Walk SF is a very important fundraising event for the 10-acre National AIDS Memorial in Golden Gate Park which is our nation's only federally-designated memorial dedicated to lives touched by AIDS.

In 2020, the AIDS Memorial Quilt, which we brought back from Atlanta became part of the National AIDS Memorial and will celebrate its 35th anniversary with a historic outdoor display in Golden Gate Park featuring more than 3,000 hand-stitched panels of the Quilt. The Quilt continues to grow and has more than 50,000 3 foot x 6 foot panels and is the largest folk art entity in the world. It is fully digitized and you can see the panels on our website: aidsmemorial.org/quilt

Since the beginning of the global HIV/AIDS pandemic more than 36 million people have died from the disease (780,000+ Americans), and currently 38 million people live with HIV/AIDS of which only 28 million are receiving therapy.

After being an AIDS Grove volunteer for nearly 20 years, I am now honored to be on the Board of Directors of the National AIDS Memorial. The Memorial helps to tell the story of HIV/AIDS to future generations so we will not have to repeat the same mistakes.

As a board member, the funds I raise through our AIDS Walk this year will directly benefit the National AIDS Memorial. I am asking you to help me reach and exceed my fundraising goal of $7,500. Your support will not only benefit the National AIDS Memorial and its programs, but it will also mean so much to me personally.

Any amount helps! On behalf of the National AIDS Memorial and the over one million Americans living with HIV/AIDS, I thank you for your support!

If you would like to join me on the AIDS Walk please let me know.

What is remembered lives.
