AIDS MARATHON!!

Oh...that's right...I'm also training for another marathon! And raising money for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.

On January 29th, 2006 I completed my very first marathon with the National AIDS Marathon Training Program, the ING Miami Marathon. What an amazing feeling that was! (pictures attached!)
Of course, when I was asked if I would raise money and complete another AIDS Marathon, I couldn't say no! What a great organization and what a great cause! While we may not be losing people as fast as we did in the 80's & 90's, AIDS is still around, people are still dying, and there is still NO cure. Until then, I've made a personal pledge to keep raising money for the SF AIDS Foundation. This is the foundation that helped my uncle when he was dying of AIDS back in the late 80's, early 90's. This is my way of giving back in memory of my uncle and for the future of my niece & nephews.
I'm asking you to reach for your checkbook/credit card and make a donation. No donation is to small (or to large for that matter!) Last year I was able to raise almost $4,000!! This year I want to surpass that amount before August 25th!
Again, a thousand thank yous for your support!
Yours truly,
Brad Niess
PS: I realized that I didn't mention which marathon!! It's the Florence Marathon on November 26th!
