It has been a busy summer for us here in The Rockies, still establishing our lives out here and enjoying the great outdoors! We just had a few exciting things to tell you about.
First off, our 4th Annual Servers Against AIDS Day is happening on July 25th, 2009! We can't believe it is already the 4th year for this event. In the past few years, the program has raised almost $11,000 dollars for The Stephen Lewis Foundation, and a few thousand dollars for regional AIDS services with the help and hard work of AIDS Bow Valley, HIV West Yellowhead, and HIV North Society.
Secondly, plans are in the works for a late November/December event here in Banff for World AIDS Day, which lands on Dec. 1. It will be something along the lines of a Scrabble Tournament and potluck with friends, all with the intention of raising funds for The Stephen Lewis Foundation. We think it will be a blast - but we are a long way off in both time and planning! We plan on keeping it small and simple for the first year. Stay tuned!
Latest in the headlines with regards to HIV/AIDS, is news about a researcher at the University of Western Ontario who has developed an HIV vaccine that is ready for human testing - read about it here. Don't forget to tune into PlusNews for all your updated news about HIV/AIDS.
Well that's all for now! Wishing you all a fabulous summer,
