Welcome to my donation page for the 2019 Indiana AIDS Walk! The 2019 Indiana AIDS Walk will be held on Sunday September 22 at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center and the Indianapolis Canal Walk. Activities will begin at 11:00 a.m. with registration opening at 11:30. The Walk will step off at 1:00 p.m.
2019 marks my third year as Team Captain for the ISDH - Division of HIV/STD/Viral Hepatitis Prevention AIDS Walk Team. Each year the size of our Team grows, but we have yet to meet our fundraising goal. I hope you'll consider helping me change that this year. I've set a $250 individual fundraising goal and a $500 Team fundraising goal. Yes, I'm trying to personally raise half of our Team goal.
Since 2000, I've been a pretty active member of the LGBTQI+ Community in Indianapolis. I've volunteered in a variety of ways from holding one-person safe sex kit parties (assembling thousands of safe sex kits for distribution in and around the city), to the creation of A Night on the Bayou - a southern fish-fry themed show. I've helped raise money for the Coby Palmer Food Pantry, the Indiana AIDS Fund, the Greg Powers DEFA Fund, IYG, Little Red Door and the Julian Center.
I walk and raise money for the Indiana AIDS Fund because there still isn't a cure for HIV. Our prevention toolbox has definitely improved with the availability of PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis in a one-a-day pill form), but there are still PLWH (people living with HIV) who need our help in Indiana.
I support the Health Foundation of Greater Indianapolis through our license plates and I raise money through the Indy Bag Ladies because I believe so strongly in helping those living with and affected by HIV. I walk for visibility of the cause; I walk for the camaraderie; I walk for the support and solidarity; and I walk to honor the memory of those we've lost.
Would you please consider supporting my efforts with a donation today? Every amount helps. Thanks for your consideration and support!
