Let's face it, it would be so cool to have the AIDS Walk be part of Coconut Grove, but it takes place in Sobe and that's just a hop, skip and a jump from us.

"It was an honor for me to be chosen for this walk. It means so much to me. This disease has touched so many in our community and around the world. We have come so far, but our journey is not yet finished," said David Bromstad.

“Early detection and treatment can prolong lives for many. We can truly change the course of this epidemic when we're all in it together. Let's make the 2015 AIDS Walk Miami the biggest, best and most profitable!" says Robbin Simmons.

As new HIV infection rates in Miami-Dade and Broward still rank the highest in the nation, members of the South Florida community are stepping up to do what they can to reduce this epidemic.
“I am proud to represent all the amazing people on Team Bubbles that have been supporting the entire community endlessly for years. We walk in memory of the millions that have been lost, the millions that are currently afflicted and the hope for a generation to come that will not have to face HIV and AIDS. The time is now to help to stop the stigma and to find a cure," said Dr. Ken Wilcox, Bubbles Team Captain.

“As Former Vice Mayor of Miami Beach it was always my pleasure to welcome the many volunteers and participants to the AIDS Walk every year.   I have lost many friends over the years to this horrible disease.   Now we have more hope than ever for a cure as researchers have announced major steps forward in the battle against AIDS and the HIV virus.  While we wait for a cure there are still millions impacted by AIDS and HIV.  It is my great hope that this global pandemic, which has killed so many be eradicated in the near future.  I urge you to join me at the AIDS Walk and in pledging your support," says Michael C. Gongora, Becker & Poliakoff, Former Vice Mayor of Miami Beach.

Through AIDS Walk Miami, for over 27 years, Care Resource has been able to raise needed funds for HIV/AIDS research, prevention, care and treatment services to individuals in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. Today, Care Resource is a full-fledged federally qualified community health center (FQHC) – a medical home for all those in need.
