REMARKS AS PREPARED
Portland AIDS Walk Kickoff
Sept. 12, 2015
Wow, this crowd is huge and your energy is electric. Thank you for supporting the fight against HIV and AIDS.
I’ve long supported the AIDS Walk, both as a private citizen and as a member of the Cascade AIDS Project’s Board of Advisors.
Each year’s AIDS Walk is a strong and visible reminder that HIV has not gone away. HIV is still a health risk and the money you raise will provide more resources to educate and reach out to young people and adults most at risk for contracting HIV.
The Cascade AIDS Project and each of you here today are integral to those efforts.
Let’s keep going.
