Remember Why We Walk and Run
Over 30,000 people in the Delaware Valley are living with HIV/AIDS. Many of our friends, family and neighbors are in desperate need of health care services and other life-saving programs, but with cutbacks in government dollars , these programs are often under-funded. Now, more than ever, your donations are needed to support organizations providing HIV/AIDS awareness, prevention education, counseling and testing and care services for people living with HIV/AIDS.
Since 1981, over 600,000 Americans have died of AIDS.
Every 9 1/2 minutes, someone in the U.S becomes infected with HIV.
Approximately 20% of people infected with HIV do not know it.
According to the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, Philadelphians are being infected with HIV at a rate MORE THAN 50% higher than residents of New York City.
The rate of infection in Philadelphia is FIVE times the national average.
About half of the 1.2 million people living with HIV in the U.S are not receiving medical care.
