The Standard Hotel, Equinox Gym, and Kiehl’s support AFA’s team in AIDS Walk 2013


We are now less than three weeks away from the long-awaited AIDS Walk New York 2013! As we gear up for the walk, the time has come for us to focus ALL of our efforts on helping the AID FOR AIDS team reach its fundraising goal.

As part of our incentives to get the team energized about fundraising, we are very excited to announce that this year we have three special AID FOR AIDS supporters who have donated prizes to be given away to some lucky team members.

The Standard Hotel has given us two gift certificate to enjoy a night of fine dining at their posh restaurant located in the Meatpacking District of New York City, The Standard Grill. We are so very proud to count The Standard Hotel among our loyal supporters with their donation in support of the AID FOR AIDS team for the third year in a row!

Going along with the focus on health and wellness for this event, Equinox Fitness Clubs has offered a prize of one month-long VIP complimentary pass to any Equinox Gym location in New York City. If you needed that extra push to get you in shape, now is your chance to win this free one-month membership simply by fundraising for our team! Also a veteran AID FOR AIDS supporter, this is the second year in a row that Equinox has supported us for the walk.

Finally, we are thrilled to announce our third supporter, Kiehl’s, who have contributed a $25 gift card to be given away to one lucky winner on our team!

How do you win? For every $25 donated to your personal page on the AIDS Walk website, your name will be put into a drawing for one of these prizes. With only 18 days left, it’s time to start emailing, texting, calling, and spreading the word on all of your social media platforms! Together, we walk for an AIDS-free generation.

For any questions or suggestions about the walk, you can get in touch with the team leader, Zach Shultz, at
