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. This will be the 10th World AIDS Marathon in Kenya, the Richard M. Brodsky Foundation has either sponsored or co-sponored with the Kisumu World AIDS Marathon Group. I promised myself back in 2002 that if my life were spared from my brain cancer I would do everything I could do to help others less fortunate than me. Thank you for giving me the opportunity of keeping my promise. If running marathons will help convince our Government and World leaders that 1,600,000 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 to people all over the world for the AIDS 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 this page show a few of the orphan dinner dances the Richard M. Brodsky Foundation has sponsored since 2006, Dr. Richard L. Sartori 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. We are pleased to announce that Dr. Julian Howard of Sydney, Australia will be joining the medical team this year.

The Richard M. Brodsky Foundation sponsored 3 festive orphan dinner dances for 1,000 Kenyan orphans on November 28, 29 and 30, 2013 in conjunction with the 2013 World AIDS Marathon, 300 Kenyan orphans were examined and 100 Kenyan orphan lives were saved. Our goal for 2014 is to raise an additional $4,000 so we can save the lives of an additional 100 Kenyan orphans by sponsoring 3 additional orphan dinner dances and providing medical care on November 28, 29 and 30, 2014.
