AIDS Walk San Francisco is a major annual fundraiser of HIV/AIDS organizations. You may have taken part in the past. Every year I walk and many of those who read this know that I take great joy in raising a higher total each year. Where though does all the money go?
According to the official AIDS Walk press release, "For 2014, 37 HIV/AIDS organizations have already signed on as co-beneficiaries of AIDS Walk San Francisco in order to support essential, direct services and advocacy for people living with HIV/AIDS. Many also wage innovative and targeted HIV prevention efforts." The logos of these organizations are above and you may recognize some of them. Project Open Hand and API Wellness Center have long been favorites of mine, but each of these groups does wonderful things.
There is also a lead beneficiary of AIDS Walk San Francisco, and that is Project Inform. This is a 28 year old organization which you can find our more about by simply going to http://www.projectinform.org/about-us/what-we-do. I'll tell you more about those other organizations at another time.
Last month I told you here about LifeCycle and today just a bit about AIDS Walk's beneficiaries. Here are two great ways to get involved though. You can register to participate. You can come and cheer on your friends. You can donate money or help with a fundraiser for another participant. Think about it. It's fun AND it helps others!
