Richard 'Dick' Gash's fundraising page!
On July 23, 2004 I received my HIV+ diagnosis and, at that moment, decided to make major changes in how I lived my life. Over the past 15 years the AIDS Foundation of Chicago has been there and helped me get to where I am today...able to give back.
I will, once again, be participating in the Chicago AIDS Run & Walk on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at Soldier Field and I am asking if you could support me in my efforts.
As a long-term survivor and an employee of AMITA Health Housing and Health Alliance for the last 13 years, I understand the importance of the Chicago AIDS Run & Walk. This annual event is critical in raising funds for those impacted by or are vulnerable to HIV/AIDS.
AMITA Health Housing and Health Alliance provides health care and stable housing for individuals impacted by HIV/AIDS and other chronic diseases. Our goal is to enhance the quality of life within a supportive community.
AMITA Health Housing and Health Alliance is a Community Partner with the AIDS Foundation of Chicago and will receive 90% of all donations made. The funds go to help the programming services at AMITA Health Housing and Health Alliance, providing a place for individuals to call home.
$5 provides a meal for a formerly homeless individual
$25 provides five people bus passes to go to and from their doctor appointments
$50 provides one night of housing
$100 provides books for one of the residents to go back to school
Last year, with the help of my friends and family and, in a BIG way, my Planet Hollywood Chicago family I was not only able to reach my goal, but surpass it!
As a team captain this year, I hope you will be able to support me in my fundraising efforts. Any dollar amount helps.
