Welcome to my fundraising page!
Hi Friends and Family,
Many of you know that I recently started working at Center On Halsted, the largest and most comprehensive LGBTQ community center in the Midwest. Every day ~ 1400 people come through our doors. In 1973, Center On Halsted (then called Gay Horizons) was started by a bold group of volunteers who decided they needed to do something to bring the community together. With the alarming outbreak of HIV/AIDS in the LGBTQ community in the 1980s, this same group of responded to provide essential supportive services. 44 years later and Center On Halsted now...
- Is open seven days a week for free HIV testing
- Administers 4,000 HIV tests both inside and outside Center On Halsted
- Runs the only HIV/AIDS and STD hotline in the state of Illinois, which connects 9,000 callers each year with referrals and resources
On October 1st, I will participate in the AIDS Run/Walk at Solider Field to raise money for Center On Halsted's HIV/AIDS and STD programming. Please consider making a donation. Your support is incredibly important considering inconsistent funding from the state of Illinois which has been without a budget for the past two years. Because of supporters like YOU, Center on Halsted will be able to continue providing life-changing services for thousands of fabulous people!
