Across America for Aids
Organized by: Steven Martinez
The AIDS program at St. Christopher's Hospital is the largest of its kind in the tri-state area, providing comprehensive care for hundreds of HIV infected children and their families. Included in this specialized HIV care are social services, well-child care and substance abuse counseling.
The money raised by this ride will helps to finance the services of a dietician and a child-life specialist for the program, and offers the children the opportunity to attend a summer camp which many of them would be unable to experience otherwise.
Additionally, the money raised will help provides families affected by this illness with financial support for emergency funds needed for housing, transportation and other expenses.
