AIDS Walk New York (AWNY) is celebrating its 25th year in 2010 and continues to be the largest HIV/AIDS fundraising/awareness event in the world. Last year's event featured more than 2,000 registered teams with 45,000 walkers who collectively raised almost US $7 million. This year's event will take place, rain or shine, in New York City's Central Park on Sunday, May 16th. AWNY benefits GMHC and dozens of other HIV/AIDS organizations.
Jason Shaw has been participating in the event for four years and has raised more than $20,000. Fundraising alone, however, is not all that inspires him to walk. "AIDS Walk New York does more than just raise funds for HIV/AIDS. It also raises awareness," says Shaw. "In spite of everything we know about this disease, young people continue to be infected at alarming rates which tells us there is a disconnect somewhere in our communities. AWNY provides an opportunity for us to come together and affect positive change -- change that can reduce the number of infections in underserved communities, and change that will hopefully reduce the stigma and marginalization that people living with this disease continue to face."
