Thanks to all of the amazing event participants, volunteers, and sponsors of Trail to a Cure’s Ride/Walk/Run 2011, three deserving beneficiary organizations are receiving funding in keeping with Trail to a Cure’s mission.
Locally, Rain of Central Missouri is receiving funding to support services for those living with HIV/AIDS in Rain’s service area. These funds fill important gaps that grants and other programs do not meet.
Also local to Columbia, Trail to a Cure has provided some funding to help support the HIV/AIDS research work at Bond Life Sciences Center on the campus of the University of Missouri. (If you aren’t familiar, be sure to check out the great work of Drs. Donald Burke-Aguero, Marc Johnson, and Stefan Sarafianos.)
And at the national level, Trail to a Cure has provided support to amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research.
In only four years of existence, Trail to a Cure has raised $52,000 for its beneficiaries. That would not be possible without all of you, our event participants, fundraiser participants, business and individual sponsors and other partners. Thank you!
And remember that next year’s event will be a big deal: it’s our fifth event and it’s on the first Saturday in May, which is Cinco de Mayo!
