Dear Mr. and Mrs. Ford,
On October 31-November 2, Forbes Hospital will hold our Fifteenth Annual AIDS Walk-a-Thon. As the need for a cure continues, so does Forbes Hospital continue to support AIDS research. Last year we were able to raise over $1,500,000 towards our AIDS Research Dept. and this year, our hope is to double that with the inclusion of corporate sponsors like Bayer, Sprint, and Procter & Gamble.
Each year hundreds of dedicated citizens participate in this event, walking 10 miles, each step a commitment towards the individual hope that collectively we CAN make a difference… That we WILL find a cure for AIDS. Our motto, “Walk of Hope” clearly speaks to the spirit of not only Forbes Hospital Research Dept., but for the 1,000s of patients we treat, as well as the determination of friends and family who refuse to accept defeat in the face of AIDS.
I am extremely proud to be participating in the 2011 Forbes Hospital “Walk of Hope” and would appreciate any support you are able to offer. I have made my personal commitment of walking 10 miles this January 8, 2011 and am currently in training to do so.
In the meantime, I’m reaching out to friends and family for support. My personal goal is to raise $2000 towards Forbes Hospital AIDS Research. I am asking each contributor to consider a tax-deductible donation of $10, $20, or $50 per mile.
Checks should be made payable to: Forbes Hospital AIDS Walk-a-Thon. All contributors will be named in the 2011 in the “Walk of Hope” portion of the Forbes Hospital website, under the “Individual Contributors” section. Photos will be posted from the event of each participant, along with a banner of total funds raised per participant in the event.
Please send donations to the following address:
Please feel free to call me at 323.555.5555 if you have any questions regarding the “Walk of Hope”. Details on the event can be found @ www.forbes-walkofhope.org should you choose to attend. Thank you for your time and earnest consideration.
