I walk because AIDS Walk is our community's single most powerful and enduring response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic and my hope is you'll join me--on the streets and with a donation or both!
I walk because in this political climate, in these times, 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 so they can continue to be with us. I walk for them because I want a cure. Will you join me in helping make lasting impacts on this fight?
I walk in honor of people who are no longer with us, for the generation of folks decimated and erased from history by an epidemic our government ignored. A generation of artists, activists, businessmen, musicians, painters, actors, writers--their lives gone so early simply because of who they loved. Imagine how different our world would have been with their long lives in our history books.
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 LGBTQ-centered primary care clinic, because every person in our community deserves compassionate, competent health care.
I support CAP because I know your money does good work--and your money has helped people I know and see every day. CAP also provides housing assistance, job training--and so much more.
