Craig R. Miller, along with his organization of activists, MZA Events, created the first 10-kilometer walkathon known as AIDS Walk New York in 1986. Their mission was to raise funds urgently needed by GMHC, a premier national nonprofit fighting against AIDS, as well as to diminish the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS.
Since its creation 27 years ago, nearly 845,000 people have walked in AIDS Walk New York, and millions more continue to donate, raising more than $122 million to combat HIV and AIDS. “The funds raised at the event remain a vital lifeline that sustains GMHC’s prevention, care, and advocacy programs for the thousands of men, women, and families affected by the disease in the tri-state area. Visit gmhc.org to learn more about its life-sustaining programs and services.”
It is Casa Atabex Aché’s privilege to partake in a community-health and national-health fundraising event of this magnitude. Such service is directly in accordance with Casa Atabex Aché’s mission as an informative healing space and as a space for empowerment. As an AIDS Walk team, it is Casa Atabex Aché’s objective to inspire more walkers to register as well as to raise funds on their official team page. All proceeds are allocated to GMHC and other AIDS service organizations in the tri-state area.
