Welcome to the 2007 AIDS Walk & Ride!
On behalf of the AIDS Walk & Ride Steering Committee, we would
like to extend our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for the time and
energy you have spent developing teams, raising much needed funds
and increasing awareness of HIV/AIDS. Without your involvement
and commitment, this event would not be possible!
We would also like to acknowledge the support of our sponsors,
including our Presenting Sponsor, the Marion County Health
Department. All sponsor funding provides additional dollars to those
with HIV/AIDS via the Greg Powers Direct Emergency Financial
Assistance (DEFA) program by providing assistance with rent,
utilities, medication, groceries and more.
And finally, we want to thank our enthusiastic volunteers. As you look
around today and see the over 150 folks wearing a gold shirt, please
thank them for their time and energy because without them, we would
not be able to facilitate the event today.
Thanks to everyone for a job well done!

The Indiana AIDS Fund
The Indiana AIDS Fund is a private philanthropic fund raising and
grant making organization dedicated to supporting HIV prevention
and services programs throughout Indiana.
The Indiana AIDS Fund was founded in 1994 and is co-convened by
The Health Foundation of Greater Indianapolis and the Indiana State
Department of Health. As a partner of the National AIDS Fund, we
have the opportunity for local contributions to be matched by the
National AIDS Fund and the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
The programs that have received funding from the Indiana AIDS
Fund are diverse, innovative and reflective of HIV/AIDS in Indiana
and include prevention programs, direct care services and advocacy.
The money raised today goes directly the Greg Powers Direct
Emergency Financial Assistance (DEFA) program, which is used for
HIV/AIDS patients in Indiana who need assistance with rent,
groceries, medication, utilities and other needs.
The Gregory Powers DEFA Fund
Established in 2002, the Gregory Powers Direct Emergency Financial
Assistance Fund (DEFA) provides grants to care coordination sights across
Indiana. These grants support a wide scope of services including medical
needs, housing issues, access to service and day-to-day living expenses for
persons living with HIV/AIDS.
Through efforts of Greg’s, Indiana STILL Cares, and the Indiana AIDS
Walk & Ride, the Indiana AIDS Fund was able to provide $133,900 in
grants to 16 Indiana community organizations. Thank you to those who
have contributed to this vital program which assists HIV/AIDS clients with
basic or emergency financial needs.
