My family took part in AIDS Walk San Francisco today and through generous donations from friends and family, raised $1350 for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. Caleb got so into it, every time we passed a group of enthusiastic volunteers (including drag queens waving pom-poms, Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, belly dancers, brass bands, etc.), he thought they were cheering just for him! I was particularly proud of him for walking the entire course, close to six miles, without kvetching much at all. I also took great pleasure (and pride) in walking with Mateo and Sadie. It feels so important, sharing something that you’re passionate about with your family…also, showing them that there is a greater community who cares about the same things. As is the case every year I walk, I was very moved by the experience.
We truly appreciate the support. It felt like we made a difference today. And, one more thing…I LOVE San Francisco!!!
