This last Sunday was AIDSWalk San Francisco’s 25th Anniversary, and coincidently, my 25th Anniversary too. I’ve walked in every walk since it started. It’s a great cause and very easy to do.
It was a great day for walking-it was cool but not cold and foggy; great for my meditative walk. I got an early start, so I did not walk with my 25,000 closest friends! I started out the day where it all started; at my very first home on Funston Ave. in the Inner Sunset. I was driving by and found a great parking space; fate.
According to promoter statistics, the event raised just over $3 million dollars. The numerous benefiting Bay Area AIDS Service Organizations will be greatly helped by these contributions. An interesting statistic: since it’s inception, AWSF has generated $77 Million in donations!
Thanks to my fiercely loyal supporters, I raised over $3,600 to date. There is still time to donate. If you haven’t already donated, please visit my AIDSWalk home page here.
