This is the AIDS Walk New York weekend. It is a very important and huge event in the City this weekend.
"AIDS Walk New York is a powerful and inspiring day in Central Park and on the streets of New York City. On May 17, 2009, we will honor those who continue to fight, embrace new allies, remember loved ones lost, and work to realize a future without AIDS." Kintera, Inc.
This is one weekend and event that I give as many hours of my time to every year. This year, unfortunately, I am really not up to the task. I still have not regained my strength or motivation to do much but I am going to try my best to participate. As you know I went back to work this week after my illness. I managed to make it through the week and what a hetcic week it was! I didn't get to ease slowly back into the swing of things, instead I was swinging like a banchee from day one, all through the week because we had so much going on there.
Any way I encourage everyone to log on to the website and make a donation. http://www.aidswalk.net/newyork/ If you are in the City get down to Central Park and participate, it's not too late. You can also make donation to the cause even after this weekend. Fundraising for AIDS research and services is a work in progress and they need all the help they can get.
I always have such a wonderful time at the AIDS Walk New York. It's eletric; the crowds, the noise, the excitement, the colors, the teams, the donations, the music and performances and the giveaways. Wow, you should be there! You will be so tired at the end of the day but very happy to be a part of this event. It is truly the thing to do and the place to be on Sunday 5/17. Volunteers are always welcome!
