Hear how Ticket Relief helped contribute to the 23rd-annual event, which raised funds for the HIV/AIDS organizations in the San Diego area.
November 10, 2012 (Newswire) - The Ticket Relief Online Traffic School and Defensive Driving Course is pleased to announce the success of the next chapter "Giving Back" charity campaign, as the preferred choice for satisfying traffic school on the Internet has joined forces with the organizers of the AIDS Walk And Run San Diego.
Ticket Relief sponsored Gary Lee, a resident of the San Diego area, as he, along with over 8,000 participants, came together at San Diego's Balboa Park for the 23rd-annual AIDS Walk and Run, the biggest single-day fundraiser to raise money for the various HIV/AIDS organizations that serve the San Diego County area.
"My brother passed away from AIDS in January 1995. I made a promise to walk in his memory and do what I personally could to help those with AIDS/HIV, so they don't have to suffer like he did," said Gary Lee. "I am very happy to say that we raised over $1,500 for critical services for those with AIDS/HIV in San Diego County, nearly $500 more than last year. The support from the staff at Ticket Relief has meant a lot to both me and my family."
The AIDS Walk and Run was founded in 1989, and has raised more than $8.5 million for organizations that help patients with the disease.
"AIDS Walk and Run San Diego makes an enormous difference for the many nonprofit HIV/AIDS service providers that receive much-needed funds, says AIDS Walk San Diego teams coordinator Ian Johnson. "Last year, in partnership with the San Diego HIV Funding Collaborative, more than $400,000 was distributed to ten community-based HIV/AIDS service organizations. Our goal is to raise awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS and to raise critically needed funds for the San Diego County HIV/AIDS organizations that serve the more than 12,000 San Diegans living with the disease."
