The Phoenix AIDS Walk will be Sunday, Oct. 21 in downtown Phoenix.

The Phoenix AIDS Walk brings together thousands of people from every walk of life. This year’s Walk will be on Sunday, Oct. 21, at 9 a.m. in downtown Phoenix. The AIDS Walk is 3 miles in length. For the first time, I created “Team San Carlos Apache.” I have invited all tribal council members and the health department to participate in this special event. I want to extend the invitation to everyone on the San Carlos Apache Reservation. The only other tribe to enter is Pascua Yaqui. People participate for a number of reasons: to remember those who died of AIDS complications, to support people living with HIV/AIDS, to raise funds for AIDS service organizations, or just to learn more. I spent countless hours making four banners, this is only one. If anyone wants to walk or carry these banners please let me know. If there’s enough people I hope the tribal council or health department can arrange transportation so our people can experience something of this magnitude which involves learning more about HIV/AIDS that cannot be taught on the reservation. Our people in San Carlos have been greatly impacted by HIV/AIDS in recent years. I personally know a great number of tribal members living with HIV/AIDS. Please take this opportunity to join “Team San Carlos” on Oct. 21. You may learn more by logging on to www.aidswalkphoenix.org or by emailing me at isadoreboni@yahoo.com. As a survivor, compassion has been more healing than any medications I have taken over the past 10 years. Please join Team San Carlos Apache!
