Theatre Bay Area Walks to Eradicate AIDS

This past Sunday, many of the Theatre Bay Area staff participated in the 2009 San Francisco AIDS Walk through Golden Gate Park. As a team (there we are, at left!), we raised over $1,000 for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. It was a great experience for all of us, and we got a tremendous amount of support from friends, family and colleagues.

The walk itself is about 6 miles through Golden Gate Park with 25,000 other walkers from far and wide. The day was gorgeous in a way that San Francisco summer days rarely are--there was almost no fog, and the sun warmed everything to just the right temperature that we could walk in short sleeves. Monday morning (the morning after), commuting from sunny Petaluma, my bus plummeted into a big old layer of fog--much more traditional summer weather for the city. I’m glad we got the sun instead.

The organizers led a pre-walk stretching session and made sure we all were hydrated throughout the run. They had an inordinate number of high school-aged volunteers shouting encouragement through bullhorns all along the route, and they had set up bands to play at regular intervals along the route to encourage us along, and provided water, ice cream (my favorite part) and other snacks to keep us energized.

The walk attracted an extraordinarily diverse group of people. There were church groups and scientists, tons of little tiny dogs, ladies in their 70s and little kids on Razors all taking the route. It was a great feeling to be giving to such an important cause, and we’ve already got plans to take part again next year.

I am very pleased that I was that day there with my friends. The walk was awesome, we stroke up acquaintances and gathered money for San Francisco AIDS Foundation. It is a great occasion that people have an opportunity to attend some events that bring not only positive contribution, but satisfaction. Writer at, Marlon Sawyer.

I appreciate the efforts you have made to create this. Although I can not see images here I can understand clearly. Today, I have seen many blogs but no one providing such huge information which helps people to be aware and take participate in these types of foundations. Because your small donation can save many lives. I want to participate but I am from Pakistan. Now, the only thing I can do is I will write more about it because I am an academic writer in which I provide the cheapest essay writing service.

I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

The exquisite beauty of a rare fogless day in San Francisco evokes a sense of wonder. Such moments mirror the warmth and clarity found in the practices of tantric hearts
. Embracing Tantra's teachings, we uncover inner radiance amidst life's unexpected splendors.
