AIDS Walk Boston 5K Run is Sunday
I have signed up to participate in this event to help raise money for HIV/AIDS awareness, education, treatment and research. While many of us do not know someone personally with HIV/AIDS it is still important to keep research towards a cure moving forward.
The Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard has a talented group of scientist and researchers working diligently to find a cure. Vast amounts of money have been pledged to support the efforts of The Institute.
As many of us will recall, AIDS was once a death sentence. In the 80’s the mortality rate was virtually 100%. Today many people live with HIV and never progress to AIDS. Many with AIDS have been able to live full and productive lives due to the efforts of researchers and scientists at places such as The Ragon Institute.
Live well my friends,
