Mara's fundraising page. YAY!
This year, will be my 9th AIDS run & walk Chicago, & my 3rd year on the board as an ambassador.
My 1st walk (almost 2 decades ago) was to support a dear friend, who was diagnosed with HIV, years before. Since then, I have met & come to know more wonderful people who live with HIV/AIDS. I'm walking for them, so many other fighters, & those gone too soon.
Your donation allows people affected by HIV/AIDS to live w/ dignity & purpose. Your support helps the AIDS Foundation & it's community partners continue their important work in Chicago.
In Illinois, an estimated 45,000 people live with HIV or AIDS, and in Chicago, approximately 28,000 people live with the disease. These numbers have gone up, since last year. Eeek.
Stigma is still so bad. (Even for me w/ epilepsy) I want continue showing the world that I am anti-stigma and there is hope. #LIVETRUEBEYOU with me on September 23, for AIDS Run & Walk Chicago.
Please consider a donation of whatever you can.
Thank you soooooo much!
