Please join me Sunday, May 15, in making a meaningful difference in the lives of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. This year is the 26th annual AIDS Walk in New York. This is my 2nd year participating, and the fight is not over.

Did you know …
• Every 9 ½ minutes, someone in the U.S. is infected with HIV?
• Half of those infected with HIV are under the age of 24?
• 25% of those infected with HIV do not know it?
• New York cases account for approximately 18% of all HIV cases in the U.S.?

Despite advancements made in the treatment and prevention of HIV, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the overall rate of infection continues to rise.

AIDS Walk New York is a 10 kilometer walkathon that benefits GMHC, in addition to several other AIDS service organizations in the tri-state area. For the past 29 years, GMHC has been dedicated to providing direct services, prevention education, and leadership on HIV/AIDS-related policy and legislation. Your donation makes it possible to continue to provide services that are essential to combat this terrible disease. Picture how your donation will bring groceries, prevention counseling for high risk youth, and mental heath support for many clients.

By pledging to be a Star Walker, I have set a goal to raise [FUNDRAISING GOAL]. I am hoping that you will help me go above and beyond in my fundraising efforts to support the services provided by GMHC.
