Hello, and thank you for visiting my Florida AIDS Walk & Music Festival webpage! This Team is a joint effort of Dr. Elie Schochet, Colorectal Surgeon, who statertrd the Happy Hiney Team and The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center. I’ve decided to take an active part in the battle against AIDS, and on Saturday, March 21, I will participate in a 5K fundraising walk along Fort Lauderdale Beach.
The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center is a "Benefitting Organization" meaning that all funds we raise will be "matched" or "doubled" dollar for dollar by AHF, AIDS Healthcare Foundation. And we a are truly grateful for this, as donations that we raise will help the museum to:
-Provide increased HIV/AIDS eduction to the youth in Broward County School District that is intended to eliminate Stigma, as Broward and Miami-Dade counties continue to have the highest rate of new infections in the county.
-Continue to expand programming at the Museum such as our Film Series and our Commuinity Dialogue sessions that continue the conversation to reduce Stigma surroung the AIDS Epidemic.
-Allow the Museum tocontinue to vibrantly tell the "accurate" story of HIV/AIDS and make sure that story is very forgotten.
This year we have 2 aggressive goals:
1. to have thwe large Team participation of 200 walkers
2. to raise $100,000 to dollar for dollar match to achieve $200,000.
Please support me with a donation. Your gift makes a direct impact on my goal to save lives right here in Florida from the devastation of HIV/AIDS. Together, we are making a difference!
