For those of you who haven’t yet signed up as part of the GFL/NSS Team raising funds during the NY AIDS Walk:
Q: Where does the money go?
A: The funds raised at AIDS Walk New York 2014 support the services provided by GMHC and more than 40 other AIDS service organizations in the tri-state area.
Q: Is there a minimum I should raise for AIDS Walk New York?
A: AIDS Walk New York does not require walkers to raise a minimum amount of money. However, we encourage everyone to set a fundraising goal and do their best to achieve it. Additionally, fundraising walkers for AIDS Walk New York are eligible for several Fundraising Awards.
Q: What is a Team?
A: Teams are comprised of walkers representing a variety of companies, schools, religious institutions, or organizations in the tri-state area. There are also many friends and family teams that participate, some of whom walk in memory of those they have lost, or to support friends and family living with HIV/AIDS. Teams can range in size from two to more than 500 walkers.
Q: What is a Virtual Walker?
A: A Virtual Walker is someone that is unable to physically be at the event, but would still like to register and fundraise with us – we welcome everyone! On the day of the event, you may choose to wear a red ribbon to show that you stand with the AIDS Walk New York community.
Now…whadaya say we pull together to beat last year’s numbers?
