Thank you!

My first AIDS Walk was in the late 80’s, early 90’s when my dearest friend was diagnosed with the virus. For several years we walked for the cure; in the end it was difficult for him but we walked anyway, slowly, but we did it. When he died, it took me a few years before I walked again.  Here’s more about Rusty and me in a feature posted on the AWNY website.

On Sunday, 18th May 2014 I plan to walk in memory of my friend, Rusty Montalvo. I invite you to join in and participate on behalf of family members, friends, friends of friends, or colleagues who are living with, or may have died as a result of the AIDS virus.

For anyone, in other cities, interested in participating, here are the approximate dates of events in your city.

If you choose to walk … great! If not, go to  my team page and support me in raising money for this cause.  And, encourage your friends to donate too!

Thanks for your anticipated support!
