|We are humbled by the community's generosity in helping us achieve our multiple goals...THANK YOU!
FIRST GOAL OF $2,500... MET!
SECONDARY GOAL OF $3,000... MET!
NEXT GOAL OF $5,000... MET!!
YET...ANOTHER GOAL OF $6,000... MET!!
We raised the bar one last time to $7,500, and with the help from a group of friends and neighbors...a grass roots effort, we made our unthinkable goal.
Once again, we humbly say THANK YOU...
You may or may not have heard of us yet...but that'll change soon! We are The Red Heel Brigade, those of us who have decided to not only support the Long Beach AIDS Foundation and AIDSWalk, but to promote our fundraiser, The Red High Heel Party, which helps support the National AIDS and Cancer Life Emergency Fund (NACLEF), which is an organic program run and supported by the Long Beach AIDS Foundation.
Why, you ask? NACLEF (formerly known as ALEF), saved the life of a friend diagnosed with Pneumocystis Pneumonia,that had just moved back into town. He was hospitalized and discharged prematurely from an area hospital without any aftercare or referrals to HIV services in the area. The Long Beach AIDS Foundation through what currently known as NACLEF, saved his life, and he's an upstanding member of our community today.
It is our personal goal, as long as we're able, to continue supporting NACLEF in any way we can. You can too, because you never know how many people suffer in silence, ashamed and afraid to say anything until it's too late.
We look to inspire the community into trying new ideas and inspiring each other to get involved in a 30+ year fight to eradicate HIV.
We'd love to have you on our team, which we will provide special teeshirts for our Brigade. We may walking, biking, low crawling (with our pets), but we'll make the event fun with lighthearted attire and smiles.
We're inspired...How about you?
