Jeffrey S Cohen
I’ve taken the plunge. This year, I’m determined to take on an even bigger challenge to help in the fight against AIDS, and I hope you will support me. This summer, I’ll be training for the Austin, Texas 70.3 HALF IRON MAN TRIATHLON, and as in years past, I’ve made it a personal mission to raise money for AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA).
Nearly 1.2 million Americans are now living with HIV, and 56,000 more will be infected this year. As many of you know, the battle against this disease is deeply personal for me, since AIDS has impacted my own family and friends in a devastating way. Fortunately, there are groups like APLA, which provide food, home health care, and other services to thousands of people whose lives are affected by HIV/AIDS. Many of them are living in poverty and have nowhere else to turn.
Along with a fantastic group of Team To End AIDS (T2) participants, I'll be working to become a better swimmer, cyclist and runner. My goal is to do something that’s not only physically challenging for me, but also beneficial to APLA's clients. For the next four months, I will train in the Pacific Ocean and along the shores of Zuma Beach. Then, on October 27, 2013, I'll travel to Austin, Texas, where I will compete in the Half Iron Man, swimming 1.2 miles in Decker Lake, cycling 56 miles through rolling farmlands, and running 13 miles (a half marathon!) through Austin.
That’s where you come in. Please join me in doing what we can to bring an end to the suffering from HIV/AIDS. For the cost of what many of us spend every day on dinner at a restaurant, you can make a real change in someone's life. Someone who isn't as fortunate as we are.
Please donate today by clicking on the yellow button above that says, "Donate to Support Jeffrey." It's easy! Help me exceed my goal and make a difference in the life of an APLA client today.
Thank you so much for caring, and thank you for your support.
