Walk On, Walk Proud
Although Kramer was beaten for choosing not to wear a ribbon in the AIDS Walk episode of Seinfeld, you will be safe as long as you show up with a full pledge sheet for todays eighteenth annual AIDS Walk Miami. Last year about 1500 walkers raised nearly $250,000, according to Terry DeCarlo, public relations and marketing manager for Care Resource, which provides free programs and services to those affected by HIV/AIDS in our community. More than 40,000 new HIV infections are reported in our country every year, and Miami has the second highest rate of HIV/AIDS cases in the nation, so do your part and walk for a cause. Registration and opening ceremonies commence at 8:00 a.m. The walk begins promptly at 9:00 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. A postwalk celebration with food and entertainment will take place at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden. There is no registration fee, but participants are encouraged to raise at least $25. Call 305-751-WALK, or visit www.aidswalkmiami.org to register.
