BP Spotlight

July 2004

AIDS Walk 2004

More than two dozen Body Positive staffers and supporters, as well as friends from Pace University, the New York Gay Hockey Club, joined Team BP at the NYC AIDS Walk on Sunday, May 16. Pledges made to participants in the 10K loop around Central Park set fundraising records for BP, which participates in the walk each year.
