I’m participating in the AIDS Walk New York this year as a runner! I’ve really enjoyed raising money for this great cause in the past. Though we’ve made great strides in the fight against AIDS, we still have a long way to go:
- One in eight of those infected with HIV is unaware of their infection.
- Nationally, about one in four new HIV infections are among youth, ages 13-24.
- According to a 2016 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, if current HIV diagnosis rates persist, about half of all gay black men and a quarter of gay Latino men in the U.S. will be infected with HIV in their lifetime.
I can’t do this without your help. Please consider sponsoring me now by visiting my fundraising page
