AIDS Walk SF - Soooo much fun!
      #200354 - 07/17/06 04:56 PM

Hey all! Hope you had a nice weekend. I just wanted to let you know what a huge success the AIDS Walk was on Sunday. I volunteered at one of the checkpoints (keeping the masses hydrated and happy with water and Snapple). It was so fantastic to see over 25,000 people come out to walk, around 1500 volunteers, and OVER 3.7 MILLION DOLLARS RAISED to change the course of the epidemic. I'll definitely be either volunteering or walking again next year. They've got a couple of pictures up at the link below:

It was truly inspirational. There are people who have walked every year for the past 20 years. One guy has singlehandedly raised almost $600,000 since it's inception. Every year, he aims to raise $30,000. It's truly incredible.

Love and peace -
