The following is a press release by GMHC, “The 30th annual AIDS Walk New York (AWNY) reversed the trend in declining returns on AIDS walks across the country this Sunday by raising more than last year’s AIDS Walk New York. Well over 30,000 walkers filled Central Park, raising critical funds to support the fight against HIV and AIDS. The event, a New York tradition of compassion and action, remains the country’s largest and most visible single-day event in response to the AIDS epidemic. The 10-kilometer walk benefits Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC) and 40 other vital AIDS service organizations throughout the tri-state area.

Governor Andrew Cuomo addressed the crowd after he was honored by GMHC for his visionary leadership in ending AIDS in New York State by 2020:

“New York has always been the progressive capital. New Yorkers always said, ‘let us lead and learn from what we do.’ And New York has always said, ‘we stand for equality and we stand for acceptance and we stand for nonjudgmentalism, and we believe that we can come together in one community and accept and celebrate our differences. And that makes us stronger as a people. And that is the best of this state and it is the best of this nation.’ And we are going to show the nation that we are committed to ending the AIDS epidemic by 2020 and we challenge every state to join us in this crusade.”

“New York is leading the country in ending AIDS as an epidemic and the 30th annual AIDS Walk New York demonstrated our communities’ capacity to continue being at the fore front of the fight,” said Kelsey Louie, Chief Executive Officer of GMHC. “By raising more money than we raised last year, we have successfully reversed the trend of declining returns on AIDS Walk events each year. GMHC will use these funds to provide lifes aving programs to thousands of people living in the tri-state area.”

“We never would have gotten anywhere in the early years of the AIDS epidemic if we weren’t prepared to be fierce when we had to be, and we had to be a lot,”said Craig R. Miller, Founder and Senior Organizer of the event. “As we mark the Walk’s 30-year milestone today with a $4.88 million fundraising total, it’s clear that our supporters are still fierce, still determined, and eager to see this through.”
