Dear Friends and Family,

I'm doing it again - running another Marathon to raise money for AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA).  This will be the fourth marathon I've run for this great organization and since it will probably be my last full Marathon, I can't think of a better way to go out - by going back to my home and running the New York City Marathon.  

If you know me, you're familiar with my story and why I run for APLA.  My wife, Jo-Ann, was first diagnosed as HIV positive in 1989 and subsequently died from complications due to AIDS in 1992.  At the time she was diagnosed I was an extremly homophobic racist, who didn't care about anyone who wasn't like me.  Her illness and the people I met along the way completely changed me and ultimately, made me a better person.  I run to honor that and to honor the people like Jo-Ann, who died way too young because of this horror.

And even though AIDS is no longer a part of my life, there are still nearly 1.2 million Americans living with HIV, and 56,000 more will be infected this year!  These aren’t just numbers; this is impacting real people and their families.  For almost 30 years, AIDS Project Los Angeles has been providing food, home health care, and other basic needs to thousands of people whose lives are affected by HIV/AIDS.  Many of these people are living in poverty and have few places to turn, especially in a struggling economy.

That's why I have committed to raising at least $5,000 for APLA.  I will be paying all my expenses for the trip to New York so all the money will be going to the people who need it. And that’s why I’m asking for your help.  Please join me in doing all that we can to bring an end to this epidemic.
