AIDS Walk New York 2013: A Smashing Success!

AIDS Walk 2013 My Life After and EBG teamThis past Sunday, 30,000 New Yorkers braved the unseasonably chilly temperatures and relentless rain and came together to walk for a great cause: the fight against HIV/AIDS and the support of GMHC and more than 40 other New York area AIDS service organizations. As a whole, we raised $5.5M!!! Amazing, right?

And I’m personally so proud and grateful because the My Life After Now and EBG team contributed $2,885! We exceeded our goal by $385 so I’d like to send out a super special thank you to everyone who donated and walked with us. We had such a great group — including a baby and a dog!

Until HIV/AIDS is a thing of the past, it’s so important for us all to keep fighting, educating, and supporting volunteer and health organizations — both with our time and money.

If Lucy Moore, the HIV+ heroine of My Life After Now, were a real person, I’d like to think we did her proud this weekend.
