What did I have in common with 25,000+ people Sunday, July 19th? We all participated in the 23rd Annual AIDSWalk San Francisco at Golden Gate Park. The event raised over 3.5 million dollars for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and dozens of other Bay Arean HIV/AIDS service organizations. Since 1987, AWSF has raised more than $70 million for HIV/AIDS programs and services in the Bay Area and has become Northern California’s largest AIDS fundraising event. Last year alone, 25,000 walkers raised a near-record $4.5 million for SFAF and more than 50 other Bay Area AIDS service organizations. The event once again brought together people from all walks of life for a common cause in the battle against AIDS and to support people with HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases.
AIDS WALK 2009 – SAN FRANCISCO
AIDS Walk – San Francisco is just around the corner and I’m extremely excited to be participating again this year. Thanks to friends, family, relatives and awesome people who were kind enough to donate, I was able to meet my goal last year of collecting $1000+ in donations and sponsorship, and thus giving me Star Walker Status. My goal this year is to collect $2000+ in donations and with your help, I’m sure I can achieve this and then some. So if you’re reading this, please consider making a donation to a worthy cause.
Feel free to link up this post or my donation site to spread the word. – Thanks!
Before going, I wanted to leave you with a few clips of last years event. Enjoy!
