I am raising funds again for this year’s AIDS Walk New York, which will be held on Sunday, May 15. This is my 30th year participating in the world’s largest AIDS fundraising event. With the generous support of my donors, I have raised over $73,000.00 to support the important work of GMHC and 40 other AIDS Service organizations in the tri-state area. These organizations provide life-saving programs and services to thousands of people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS, and GMHC is leading the effort to demand a cure.
This cause is very close to my heart. To date, more than 100,000 New Yorkers have died from AIDS-related causes, and thousands are still becoming infected each year. I have lost too many friends over the years that had their whole lives ahead of them and too many friends living with the virus the causes AIDS. I walk in memory of all those who lost the battle and to honor those living with the virus.
As a member of The GMHC’s Board of Directors, I look forward to the day when we can lock the doors because we found a cure. But until then I need your help!
HIV and AIDS are still serious problems for so many people in our community. Please help me continue to raise funds for critical programs that save lives and prevent new infections, bringing us closer to ending AIDS. To sponsor me, click here: https://ny.aidswalk.net/NicholasCoppola
