I am so proud to be the Team Captain for The Desert Winds Freedom Band team again this year!
The Desert Winds Freedom band will be musically supporting the walkers on the route again this year. We will be located in front of The Palm Springs Florists. When you pass by please say HI to me!
Please consider helping me reach my personal fundraising goal of $2,000 this year. If you donate to my page/team please see below how Desert AIDS Project will dontate to Desert Winds Freedom Band as well. Your donation is supporting 2 great non-profit organizations.
Desert Winds Freedom Band is proud to be a Desert AIDS Walk Community Partner again this year as we share our common goal of serving those most vulnerable. As a Community Partner, Desert Winds Freedom Band will receive 50% of the net proceeds raised by our team! The other 50% of our team's net will go to Desert AIDS Project to continue serving their 4,200, mostly low-income, clients with an unparalleled range of services.
The 31st Desert AIDS Walk is a grassroots community event supporting HIV and AIDS services, prevention, and advocacy at Desert AIDS Project (D.A.P.). Desert AIDS Walk has made it possible for us to continue serving the clients of D.A.P. with an unparalleled range of services:
- medical and dental care
- transportation assistance
- mental health counseling
- a Community Center with a variety of educational and social activities, including skills-for-living and back-to-work training
Simultaneously, we are working harder than ever, to help bring about an end to further HIV infection here in our community as the lead agency on Get Tested Coachella Valley. The goal of "Get Tested" is to get 100% of the Coachella Valley tested for HIV. This is critically-needed because:
- More than half of Coachella Valley residents have never been tested for HIV
- The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that approximately one in five people living with HIV do not know they are infected
- In our valley, the prevalence of HIV is more than twice the national average —putting everyone at greater risk
With each step we take and each dollar we raise, we can test more people, bring more people who are HIV positive into care, and move one step closer to an "AIDS free generation".
