AIDS Walk Raises Millions, Fun Time Too

The 6.2 miles (10km) walk from 59th St in Central Park, up and around it to 110th, down Riverside Drive, and back to the finish line was exhausting but fun! There were refreshments such as drinks and snacks along the way, and plenty of volunteers to help cheer everyone on! Oh, and about 45,000 other participants who helped raise $7,058,497, a record amount, for the GMHC and other organizations. It wasn't too sunny and the rain held off until sometime after I finished the walk (10:15 to 12:50). It felt great to help raise money for a good cause while seeing the city's treasures and getting a great workout. I definitely hope to be able to participate next year!
