I RUN PROUD with T2.

Welcome to the TEAM TO END AIDS (T2EA) fundraising page of Scott C. Morgan.

I was also a co-host of the first “Opera Tunes” fundraiser from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, March 24, at Sidetrack video bar, 3349 N. Halsted St., Chicago (tickets at operatunes.eventbrite.com). Meaghan Stainback was the other Opera Tunes co-host, and her separate T2EA fundraising page is at: http://events.aidschicago.org/goto/MeaghanStainback2019

T2EA is a training program to help amateur athletes (like myself) train for endurance races, and it is run as a fundraising arm of the AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC).

I’m asking for your financial support so I can reach my 2019 T2EA fundraising goal of $1,800 so I can run my seventh Chicago Marathon with T2EA on Sunday, Oct. 13, 2019. That same day, Meaghan Stainback plans on competing in the Louisville Ironman, and she needs to raise $3,000 for T2EA.

One way we got a jump on donations was by co-hosting an Opera Tunes fundraiser. Thank you to everyone who attended Opera Tunes or donated to the event in absentia.

What personally helped me get through each of my previous six marathons (and two Chicago Half Marathons) was the unflappable support of T2EA coaches and staff, plus all the encouragement of my fellow runners in training. As someone who never ran before I sought out T2EA in 2011, I have come to rely on the help and knowledge of everyone involved with the organization.

HIV and AIDS are not in the news much these days, but an estimated 28,000 people throughout Chicago are living with HIV and need equitable access to services, such as housing, health care and case management, in order to stay healthy. AFC connects people to the services they need and is working with other organizations throughout the state to get Illinois to reach zero new HIV transmissions by 2030.

In 2016 alone, 839 Chicagoans were diagnosed with HIV. While this is the lowest number of new HIV transmissions in years, many more still don't know they are living with the virus. I am committed to running the distance to raise awareness and eradicate the stigma attached to HIV, all while benefiting a cause I am passionate about.

Help me cross the finish line, and help thousands of people across Illinois live better lives. Donate to my T2 campaign today. Just click the DONATE TO ME button to the right to get started.
