Welcome to my 2017 AIDS Walk Central Ohio Personal Fundraising page!
Thank you for your donation and support. I will keep raising funds for AIDSWalk and many of your have donated all of those years - Thank you. Your donation is greatly appreciated. Here are some facts about HIV/AIDS in Central Ohio and where your money goes.
- In central Ohio a new infection occurs every 22 hours - among the highest rates in the nation. Most of these new infections occur among youth ages 13-29.
- 1 in 8 people with HIV don’t know they are infected, don’t get HIV medical care and can pass the virus on to others without knowing it.
- Thanks to medical advances, if we get HIV-positive individuals quickly diagnosed and into treatment, they have near-normal life expectancy and are far less likely to transmit the virus (up to 96% less likely).
- Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a new HIV prevention method that is used to help HIV-negative individuals reduce their risk of becoming infected with the virus by taking a once-daily pill.
The participating AIDS service organizations that benefit from AIDS Walk are at the forefront of providing services to meet the needs of HIV positive individuals in central Ohio. Won't you join us in the fight against this disease?
I will be participating in the 2017 Dr. Robert J. Fass Memorial AIDS Walk Central Ohio on Saturday, April 15, 2017 at McFerson Commons in downtown Columbus. You can show your support by joining my team, making a donation on my page or even just showing up to cheer me on. This is more than just a walk!
