Vacations should be a time of escaping everyday life. Getting away from it all. However, vacationing in New York means that there is always something on the go and in the case of the AIDS Walk it is something extremely worthwhile. The AIDS Walk this year will be taking place on May 20th with the main focus being on completing the first 25 years in the fight against AIDS. Although a lot more is understood about AIDS than two decades ago, unfortunately the war is far from over as a cure is yet to be found.
The Walk calls on all citizens of New York City – big corporations and individuals alike – to step up to the plate and help with the scourge called the AIDS pandemic. AIDS affects millions of people around the world and stands as the biggest threat to human existence. Only through awareness can AIDS be reined in. Both corporate and private teams can enter the Walk, with all proceeds going towards AIDS research and clinics. It is also possible to sponsor a team or an individual.
One way to feel a part of New York City’s unique culture is to become involved in the AIDS walk in some capacity. This can be done through a small donation, as a spectator or as a participant.
