AIDS Walk New York celebrated their 31st anniversary at Central Park on Sunday May 15, 2016. Dr. Charrai Byrd and Dr. George Bugayenko were this year’s team co-captains. The New York City Society of Health-System Pharmacists encouraged student participants from the Touro Student Society of Health-System Pharmacy to join their team to support the AIDS cause. Our fundraising goal this year was $3,000 and we continue to ask for your support in reaching our team’s goal!
Celebrities such as Rosie Perez (The View), Conrad Ricamora (ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder), Kit Williamson (Mad Men), and Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach (Miss Universe 2015) also came to show their support during the opening ceremony. What a lovely surprise!
Our team finished the 6.2-mile walk in about 1.5 hours. We concluded the day with Sunday Brunch at Café Frida in the Upper West Side.
