2011 St. Petersburg Aidswalk pictures
« on: September 10, 2011, 05:56:31 PM »

We had the aids walk today in St. Petersburg, and it went very well.  The walk started at 9:55AM, and it took about 1 hour for Ed and myself to complete. The weather held up, but toward the end of the walk the lightning and thunder started, so people scattered pretty fast.

I'm going to take a nap right now, but I will post pictures later tonight. But for now, here's a pic of Ed and myself, sitting on the wall.  More pics ....


This is Ed:

And here's a few pictures, of our walk on Friday, in Largo around Taylor lake: ( since I am in the Picture mood !   :)  This is where we do our 2 mile walk on Saturday's.  There were no gators sunning themselves on Friday.  But this is a nice nature walk:

Ray,

Thanks so much for posting the pics..all of them. I'm participating in a walk this fall and I'm going to suggest to the planning committee that they imitate the "I'm walking because" signs and, if possible, the statistics signs. I've been in several walks and have not seen that done. It's such a great way to educate people.

I think it's a great idea !!  They have always had the paper signs to place on the back of the shirts, since I can remember,  but the statistics signs are new this year.  One of the first things I noticed during the walk.

Hi Ray

I love the "I'm walking because" poster on the back of the walkers, a great reason to take part, and yes I did notice the "hot pants"...thank you for sharing, I'm glad you both enjoyed your day.

awesome pictures!

weather, wild animals, educational stats, the walkers, the motivating sentiments, some great ideas for other walks, the Tampa area - city, bay and park, local gay life, hot men, a glimpse into your life, and lots of nature.

thanks for sharing and posting!! :-*

This was also, the most successful Aids walk yet.  $155,000.00, was collected this year, with over 800 participants.


AIDS Walk shatters records with $155,000
Written by  Steve Blanchard

    

AIDS Walk St. Petersburg shattered goals on Sept. 11 by raising more than $155,000 at the eighth annual fundraiser for the AIDS Service Association of Pinellas.

According Jay Aller, the resource development manager with ASAP and one of the organizers of the 5K (3.1 mile) walk, more than 800 people participated in the fundraiser.

“That includes walkers, volunteers, staff—everyone,” Aller said. “I believe this was the biggest one yet.”

AIDSWalkSeveral factors contributed to the growth of the Walk this year, and pinpointing one specifically isn’t easy, Aller said. This is the first year a major radio station—Play 98.7 FM—participated in the walk. It’s also the first time social media played a major role.

“And bringing in a headliner was a first for us,” Aller said. “Frenchie Davis opened doors for us, brought out people and put more attention on the AIDS Walk. So to say one specific thing helped more than another is difficult.”

Other media sponsors like Bright House Networks and ClearChannel also helped spread the word, Aller said.

“Our grand marshal, [Bay News 9 Traffic reporter] Chuck Henson, was also invaluable,” Aller added. “I want to thank him for his support on Facebook and his support of our community and being such a champion for the fight against HIV and AIDS.”

Aller wasn’t the only person involved with organizing the successful AIDS Walk St. Petersburg this year. Committee Chair Dale Kitt, along with a full planning committee were invaluable, Aller added. Committee members included Tim Beams, Mike Bell, Chris Gardner, Greg Henchar, Victor Lopez, Dennis Lyons, Matt Moss, Christopher Ramos, Steven Rodriquez, Barry Rothstein, Chris Schombs and Bryn Warner.

Plans are already underway for the 2012 run, which will be Sept. 8 of next year. Aller said another headliner will be in the mix and some changes in the post-walk entertainment may keep people from having to stay in the park for so long.

In the meantime, ASAP and Aller are focused on a December fundraising event—the Santa Speedo Run. The Dec. 17 one-mile fun run raises money for the Brighter Seasons for Children Program, which focuses on pediatric HIV/AIDS clients.
