30 years into the AIDS epidemic, we know what works to prevent new infections. We just need the resources to reach more people and keep the ones affected in good care.
This year, on the Wednesday-Friday before the Walk & Run, we're challenging ourselves to raise an extra $30,000 so we can reach even more people with prevention and care.
That's a 30% increase over last year for $130,000 total, so we're going to need YOUR help.
