Why is AIDS Walk important to me? I walk because AIDS Walk is our community's single most powerful and enduring response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic.
I walk because I can't count the number of times I've used CAP's resources for HIV tests and STD screenings. Cascade AIDS Project is there for our community--I know from experience.
I walk because in this political climate, raising money for our vital nonprofits is more important than ever.
This is the cause nearest and dearest to my heart. We've come so far in terms of treatments, but we still have a long journey ahead. I walk in AIDS Walk every year for every single friend I know who has to take expensive, life-saving medication--I want everyone to have access to those meds. I walk for them because I want a cure.
I walk proudly to end the stigma surrounding HIV and AIDS. I walk for Cascade AIDS Project because they save lives every single day, and they are committed to testing, early detection--and serving disenfranchised communities, who are often the most vulnerable. I walk for Prism health, our community's new LGBTQ-centered primary care clinic, because every person in our community deserves compassionate, competent health care.
I walk in honor of people who are no longer with us, for swaths of people decimated and erased from history by an epidemic our government ignored. Artists, activists, businessmen, musicians, painters, actors, writers--their lives gone simply because of who they loved. Imagine how different our world would have been with their long lives in our history books.
Thank you for your support!
