DAY2's Fundraiser:

Stop AIDS, Not AIDS Research

DAY2's Photo

BENEFITING: DAY2

EVENT DATE: Sep 01, 2013

THE STORY:

Dr. Yuntao Wu is a George Mason University scientist whose has changed the direction of AIDS research with a series of published articles in the top scientific journals, including Cell.

At the end of June, 2013, his groundbreaking latest research, which was funded in part by the participants in three of our NYCDC bike rides, will be announced in a prestigious science journal.

Dr. Wu, like many prominent researchers, lost a major NIH grant this spring because of the Congressional budget cuts known as the sequester. He has been forced to take out a loan for $35,000 to keep his Virginia lab running.

Our goal is to raise the $35,000 he needs to pay his lab manager, who oversees the work of graduate students, and to cover the minimal stipends that these students depend on.

- Without private funding he would be forced to stop trials on a current research project that has the potential to save millions of lives.

- His AIDS research would be set back back by two or more years while he hires and trains a new staff when new grants are awarded.


That's too much time to lose for the millions of people living with HIV/AIDS.

You can support his research with a generous pledge. Day2 Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization that will give 100-percent of the money we recieve to Dr. Wu. The crowdrise.com site will take a credit card processing fee from your donation, but hey, that's only fair.

Start with a pledge. Today.

You can also sign up (for free) and join our team and create your own challenge.

Do a century. Run 26 miles. Throw an unforgettable house party.

We rode 1000s of miles, we got to know Dr. Wu, his doctoral students and researchers filled our Gatorade bottles and trimmed our peanut butter sandwiches on the road from NY to DC, and we've had the pride of seeing NYCDC AIDS Ride credited on prestigious AIDS research.


We've traveled too far to let Dr. Wu and his lab down.
