I'm a Roadie Again!
We are closer than ever to finally ending the AIDS crisis. In the past year alone we've learned of promising new advances in the battle to end HIV/AIDS. Advanced treatment techniques combined with new drugs show hope of a world without this terrible disease - maybe in the next decade or two. Funding for research and treatment is more critical than ever. The goal is in sight, but the battle is not yet won. We can't stop now.
As many of you know, after a decade of fundraising for AIDS Walk, 5 years ago I decided to take on a new, broader commitment for the cause - AIDS/Lifecycle. It was clear from the day I signed up that the experience would have a lasting impact on me. It's hard to describe the "love bubble" around this event, but it truly exists. People from all walks of life - rich/poor, old/young, gay/straight, family/friends - and all parts of the globe - a woman on my Roadie team was from Australia - come together for one of the most intense events with one goal in mind - ending HIV/AIDS. It's a week of togetherness. We laugh; we cry; we eat; we sleep; we shower; we camp; we charge (our phones) - all together.
Please help! I can't do any of this without you, and the cause still needs us all.
