On July 28, 1985, I participated in the world’s first AIDS Walk in Los Angeles. Along with 4500 other walkers, we set out with the goal of raising $100,000. At days end we had raised $673,000. Little did I know that, 37 years and 34 AIDS Walks later, I would still be walking to raise funds. AIDS doesn’t grab headlines like it did in the 80s and 90s. But In 2019, 36,801 people received an HIV diagnosis in the United States. Many persons with HIV, often coming from marginalized communities, still endure negative repercussions from too many misinformed individuals who continue to discriminate against and to make funding for support of those suffering with AIDS difficult. Not only are funds raised from AIDS Walk vital in supporting HIV positive persons, they are primary in supporting prevention, education and early intervention in the ongoing pandemic. Please donate to AWSF today. Thank you, Rell
