This year I’ll be taking part in the Honolulu AIDS Walk 2015. The event is organized by the Life Foundation and presented by the Sheraton Waikiki.
This is the 24th year of the walk and will be held this year on Sunday, April 19th,. Since the first walk in the early 1990s, the Honolulu community of walkers, supporters, and sponsors have been able to raise 2.5 million dollars in support.
