Welcome to Ruth's fundraising page
Dear Family and Friends:
The time is fast approaching for the October 1 AIDS Run Walk Chicago! Please consider joining my co-workers, the Junior Council, and me on the SID team. Please make a donation if you can't join in, but want to help!
I have been a nurse at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's hospital of Chicago for over 30 years now. I work with the Special Infectious Diseases (SID) team, committed to the care of children and young adults living with HIV. Frequently our patients face challenges that require our assistance. We often need to provide HIV medications to uninsured patients until they can be enrolled into drug assistance programs and obtain insurance.
HIV medications can cost up to $1000/week!
Participation in the AIDS Run and Walk Chicago can provide much needed funds to help us continue to assist our families. This year SID has been invited to participate as a Community Direct Partner, which means that 90% of the funds raised will be awarded directly to SID!
Please consider donating to this great cause! And...thank you in advance for supporting me as I #BANDTOGETHER to raise awareness and eradicate HIV/AIDS.
