Every Step is One Step Closer to the Cure
Racing to Save Lives
Thank you for believing in the work of the Richard M. Brodsky Foundation. Welcome to the 11th annual World AIDS Marathon in Kisumu, Kenya sponsored by the Richard M. Brodsky Foundation. I promised myself back in 2002 that if my life were spared from HIV and brain cancer I would do everything I could do to help others less fortunate. If running marathons will help convince our Government and world leaders that 1,100,000 people need not die from AIDS every year, then I pray that G-d will give me the strength to continue running marathons. Let’s just get the AIDS medicine and follow-up medical care to people living with HIV all over the world. At the same time let’s make sure that clean drinking water and adequate, nutritious food is available for the medicine to be effective. Please join me in making a commitment to the 15,100,000 orphans in sub-Saharan Africa that we will never forget these children. They could just as easily be our children if we were born in Africa. The pictures noted on the website, www.worldaidsmarathon.com, show the orphan dinner dances the Richard M. Brodsky Foundation has sponsored since 2006. Also pictured are Dr. Richard L. Sartori from Long Island, Dr. Julian Howard of Australia and Dr. Benson Bonyo and his medical team from Akron, Ohio examining the orphans, and Mama Sarah, President Obama's grandmother, flagging off the 2008 World AIDS Marathon and giving $1,000 in prize money every year since 2008 to the fastest runners. The prize money is donated by the Richard M. Brodsky Foundation. We like to think of ourselves as a mini-mini Doctors without Borders except we have two advantages, not only do the doctors get to examine and treat the orphans, they also get to, (1) dine and dance and play soccer with the orphans and 2) run with the Kenyans on World AIDS Day. The Richard M. Brodsky Foundation sponsored 3 festive orphan dinner dances for 771 Kenyan orphans on November 28, 29 and 30, 2015 in conjunction with the 2015 World AIDS Marathon; 99 Kenyan orphans were examined. For 2016, the Brodsky Foundation with your help will by sponsoring an additional orphan dinner dance and providing medical care on November 27, 28, 29 and 30, 2016.
