Should I bring any food or water:

To be honest from previous experience, The Aids walk sponsors supply you with enough fruit, bars and water for a life time. But I always say do the following

  • Bring water
  • Sun-block
  • Light and comfortable clothing
  • Sneakers or comfortable foot gear
  • Signs are always welcome

    Hi everyone I hope your weekend is well. I have some fundraising ideas.
    1. Is asking your office if you can put a small piggy bank on your own desk and verbally let office coworkers know you're participating this year in the NYC Aids Walk @ Central Park.
    2. Another is a unique general email blast to family and friends, something clever and includes your personality
    3. My favorite change jar or the DVD collection I have been wanting to get rid of to make room for my new laptop
    4. Also social sites and twitter, facebook etc.
    5. Got Blog, start blogging about your experience, your reason, make it heart felt and send the link, ask friends to reply and comment!!!
    .... add some ideas of your own!
