Each years the staff and volunteers at the New Orleans NO/AIDS Task Force host their annual walk. This event helps raise money for HIV programs, treatment, medication, and needed medical services for those with HIV/AIDS. It's always a fun and exciting event; that brings people from around the New Orleans area together, young and old alike come to support this important event.
This year was no exception, Hosted by Christian Le Blanc of the Young & The Restless, he truly did an amazing job of getting everyone ready and excited. At the time of this posting the NO/AIDS Task Force has raised $149,941.00; with the generous support of local companies: Chevron, Quest diagnostics, Avita Pharmacy, Higher Power, Girls First, Capital One, DHL, New Orleans Gay Men's Chorus, Louisiana Pizza Kitchen Uptown, Team UNO, and many teams who helped raise money.
I believe that it is important to support you're local community, and to give back whenever I can. My mother once told me that charity begins at home, and that it's not just about raising money, but showing your support. This enables me to try to give back whenever, and however I can. I had a wonderful time seeing my friends, meeting new people, and seeing so many come together for a common cause. To the men and women of the NO/AIDS Task Force, BRAVO! A job well done, and thank you.
