AIDS Walk New York Sunday, May 16, 2010
Submitted by hafnycadmin on Tue, 04/06/2010 - 21:44
2010 marks the 25th anniversary of the AIDS Walk—let’s all walk to continue to make a difference. While the past 25 years have given way to significant progress in our collective struggle to fight HIV and discrimination associated with it, there is so much more that needs to be done to fight stigma and the ignorance that fuels the growing number of new HIV infections. Younger people continue to be infected at alarming rates in spite of the fact that young people historically have been the catalysts of most social movements. The Hispanic AIDS Forum, as it too celebrates its 25th anniversary, will walk to raise much needed funds to help re-purpose its HIV prevention services with a goal of reversing HIV infection trends amongst young people. We have seen gains already with young men testing for HIV and accepting sexual health counseling and referrals at much higher rates than ever. I hope that you will support our efforts by sponsoring our Team or any of its members. Join us and help fulfill the potential of our young people in stopping HIV in its tracks, so that a not-so-distant Walk may be “The HIV Freedom Walk”. Thank you for your support. Heri Sánchez Soto
