EVENT: Orlando's Amazing Racea
EVENT DATE: Sep 12, 2015
Robert and I are competing in the AMAZING RACE ORLANDO for charity. Please help us by giving some $$$ to our charity organization. We need to raise $1500 to race. We are way behind. You can donate anonymously, and it's a safe site like "Gofundme".
Please donate. I think if we give you some insight into where the dollars you are raising will go, it will help you let others know why they should open their hearts and donate to your team.
The money you are raising will help the LGBT Cente...r
combat HIV/AIDS here in Orlando.
Orlando currently rates #1 in the nation (not in the State, but in the nation) in new HIV infections.
We, The Center, are the largest HIV Tester in the State of Florida doing almost 500 tests per month and are getting 1 to 2 new infections each day, mainly in our younger generation (most recently we have had two 14 year olds, a 19 year old and a 21 year old test reactive, males and females, and they just keep coming).
The funds you are raising will help us create a targeted prevention campaign, including billboards, and outreach, to this specific younger demographic.
HIV/AIDS is still here, people are still being infected and dying at an alarming rate and we are at the epicenter here in Orlando.
