Tim's LifeWalk Page

Let's Walk for Life!

THANK YOU for stopping by my page and supporting me as I walk for LIFE! Personally, I have only known one person who passed away due to complications from an AIDS-related disease. I used to work along side him back in the 80s. I heard about his passing several years after we worked together. Today I may or may not know someone in my life who is HIV positive or has AIDS. We live in a world where people are able to obtain treatment and support and we may not be aware of what they are going through. HIV and AIDS touches people in all areas of life. 

There are people who are dealing with HIV and AIDS issues and they don't have the social or financial support like many of us have in life. Because they don't fit the "normal" of how their family and friends feel they should be they are rejected by the very people who should be supporting them.

As a perk this year LifeWalk is offering raffle tickets when you donate! One ticket for every $10 or 3 tickets for every $25 you donate to sponsor the walk. I will get your information and mail you your tickets! Here are the prizes: 1st prize - Caribbean Cruise (4 night/5 day Royal Caribbean Cruise. 2 RT Southwest Airlines tickets, included.); 2nd prize - Southwest Airlines (Two RT tickets on a domestic Southwest Airlines flight.); 3rd prize - Weekend for Two (Weekend Maserati rental, 1 night stat at DoubleTree Market Center, and dinner for 2.). Maybe you are wondering just what the money donated will go for. Here are some of the ways this money will be used:

$25 can provide free HIV tests and STI screenings and required lab work.

$25 can provide up to a week of protein packs for those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. These help with the taking of required medications which have to be taken with food.

$25 can provide bus transportation for up to 4 weeks.

$50 allows a client to meet with a medical provider on a regular basis to ensure their health is maintained.

$100 empowers a person living with HIV to handle stigma with a counseling session.

$250 enables a client to stay on top of their health with comprehensive blood work while monitoring their health.

I know this may not seem like much but every dollar can help someone. I will be walking on October 6th with the UT Southwestern Team. I hope some of you may help me out raising funds to help support this cause. Please let me know if I can answer any questions. Thank you for listening to me!

All people deserve the chance to live. Dallas has one of the highest rates of new HIV infections in the United States of America. Your support of me and Prism Health North Texas will illuminate healthy futures for many North Texans through education, clinical research, prevention, and personalized integrated HIV care.

Please donate & support my efforts today or join me in walking to end HIV/AIDS. An HIV/AIDS free generation is possible with your support.
