the little things matter
There's always something you can do
HIV/AIDS is a monstrous disease which originated in non-human primates in Sub Saharan-Africa and was transferred to humans during the late 19th or early 20th century. 25 millions are already dead of it; every 8 seconds someone dies of it and 33.4 million people are currently living with it. Many doctors and researchers are working hard to find a cure, but what can WE do to help?
New-York AIDS walk on May 18th
There's plenty of thing we can do. But here's one: the NYC AIDS walk.This walk is organized by the GMHC (Gay Men Health Crisis), the world's first AIDS service organization and the largest. Like most of us, this organization was wondering how they could raise awareness and engage the public, media, and government in the fight against the AIDS epidemic that was growing way to fast. That’s how the first 10 km walkathon took place May 18th 1986 in New-York. With those walks, they raised more than $128 million to combat HIV and AIDS since the past 28 years. The funds raised at AIDS Walk New York 2014 support the services provided by GMHC and more than 40 other AIDS service organizations. It’s simple, you create a team, or you go alone, and weeks before the walk you try to raise money around you, you’re family, colleague etc. It’s easy, fun and most importantly, it’s for a good cause.
So what are you waiting for? Just click on the button below and register to raise money and awareness to maybe be able to live in a AIDS free world one day.
