AIDS Walk New York 2011

Rain did not dissuade 45,000 New Yorkers from gathering in Central Park to join the 26th annual AIDS Walk New York, organized by Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC). By the end of the day, Sunday, May 15, walkers and supporters raised $6,214,768 for GMHC and 41 other local AIDS service organizations.

The event’s opening ceremony featured speeches by Marjorie Hill, PhD, CEO of GMHC, and Craig R. Miller, founder of AIDS Walk New York. Celebrity guests included Mondo Guerra and Jack Mackenroth of Project Runway, Lee Pace of The Normal Heart, Mike Ruiz of The A-List, Dot-Marie Jones of Glee and Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet of Modern Family—plus many more. U.S. Representative Charles B. Rangel and New York State Senators Thomas K. Duane and Adriano Espaillat also appeared on stage. Presenting corporate sponsors included Duane Reade, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Delta Air Lines. Audra McDonald (Private Practice) performed “You’ll Never Walk Alone” before walkers set off on the 6.2-mile route around the park.

Since its inception, AIDS Walk New York has raised more than $116 million for HIV programs and services in the tri-state area and has become the largest AIDS fund-raising event in the world.
