I am excited to embark on another year of fundraising and advocacy. Someone who has a special place in my life is fighting for their life. I will respect their wishes by keeping their identity private. However, I am determined to raise funds to support people living with HIV/AIDS. I remain hopeful that my actions will give my loved one courage to Stand Up, Stand Out, and be Fearless. Hope will never be silent - and until I see an end to AIDS, neither will I.
