Help me raise money for AIDS Walk Portland that supports the crucial programs and services of Cascade AIDS Project (CAP).
I am getting involved in our community's single most powerful and enduring response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic and my hope is that you will too. To make a donation on my behalf and help me reach my fundraising goal, please click on the "Donate Now" button to the right.
I have had the good fortune to work with Cascade AIDS Project in various ways over the past 20+ years, and it is my honor to support their incredible work to provide housing, healthcare, case management, and other services to people living with HIV/AIDS, as well as education and health services to help prevent its spread.
I owe my career to an incredibly gentle soul. He was a man named Jerry Moses. Jerry was one of the sweetest and most supportive people I've met in my lifetime, and I don't believe I would have worked in the affordable housing field if he had not hired me out of high school. I only got to work with Jerry for about two years because he became very ill and had to take a leave of absence from work. We did not know until after he had passed away that he had been HIV positive, and he died from AIDS-related complications.
When Jerry became sick, there were very few resources for people living with HIV. Treatments were in their infancy. He did not have much of a chance. I walk not just to honor his memory, but to help ensure that no one has to face being HIV positive without support, medication, and, most importantly, housing.
Thank you for your support! Your donation to AIDS Walk means a lot to me, but it means even more to the thousands of people helped by Cascade AIDS Project.
