My name is Marie Forrest. Last year I participated in The
National Aids Marathon Training Program as a promise to my dear friend
who is living with HIV. It was one of the most important committments
I made in my life and it turned out to be one of the most rewarding.
This year I have made the comittment again, because, of course,
I love my friend just as much this year,if not more!
Further,after becoming involved with the training program I became increasingly aware of the needs of the people in our community,
as well as all communities living with HIV/AIDS. Many people living with
HIV/AIDS who don't have the family or resources to help them can rely only on
organizations like the APLA.
The Aids Marathon Training Program has encouraged me to search for
meaning in all life. That the the answer to the old biblical question,
is yes, "We are our brother's keeper." And, in that respect vicariously,
I too, suffer from HIV/AIDS, through the people I love who are infected.
Please sponsor me in the Marathon for the life of all people. All
contributions go to the Aids Project Los Angeles and are a tax deductible.
I couldn't even run around the block when I began The Aids
Marathon Training Program last year. Since then I have completed two
26.2 mile marathons; the Chicago Marathon and the Los Angeles Marathon.
This year in our fight against AIDS and to assist people living with
HIV/AIDS, myself and the other participants will be running the
Honolulu, Marathon -- another 26.2 miles!
In order to sponsor me all you need is my name Marie Forrest and
