Boston AIDS walk and 5k run: June 3rd

AIDS Action CommitteeThis Sunday The AIDS Action Committee (AAC) will host Boston’s 26th AIDS Walk.  This event which draws thousands has been held the first Sunday of June since 1986 and it serves a dual purpose; first it raises large sums of unrestricted money to allow AAC to better serve its mission; second it raises awareness within our community.

Unfortunately, this year I will not be able to  attend the event, but I will be sending a donation to the AAC. I would ask you to consider doing the same if you will not be attending this event.

Why is it important to keep walking?  

Every 9.5 minutes someone in the US is infected with HIV.

AAC makes participating in the walk very easy.  You can log online at AIDSWalkBoston.org and sponsor yourself then join everyone down at the DCR Hatch Shell along the Esplanade.
