2010 AIDS WALK A ROARING SUCCESS!
TEAM REID 2010 joined thousands of other walkers to raise money for and celebrate the good work that Aid For Aids of Nevada does for people living with HIV/AIDS in Nevada. Several dozen people from all walks of life and ages ranging from those in strollers up to active seniors joined to show support for both the charity and for our friend, Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid.
We were joined by progressives from various clubs and caucuses such as the Red Rock Dems, Stonewall, the Clark County Democratic Black Caucus and others. OFA showed up in force along with African Americans for Harry Reid, the Asian American Caucus, both the state and Clark County Dems, folks all the way from Mesquite and Laughlin and members of various unions such as SEIU and the Southwest Flight Attendants.
The walk attracted over 8500 walkers and was followed by a family festival with lots of hot dogs and smiles. Congresswoman Shelley Berkley came and hung out meeting and greeting pretty much everyone in the place while never tiring of stopping to chat, listen or have her picture taken with her many admirers. The woman is a Rock Star!
Secretary of State, Ross Miler and his (gorgeous) wife were there to accept an award for his work on behalf of Equal Rights for all Nevadans and Kristine Kuzemka (who's running for Justice of The Peace) was honored as well. Several other candidates such as Paul Murad, Gloria Sturman (District Court Judge candidate), Nancy Alf and Carolyn Essex (running hard for the Assembly seat in North Las Vegas!)and too many others to remember and list, all joined with TEAM REID 2010 to make this year's AIDS Walk a smashing success!
Take a look at the pictures for a front row seat on the fun!
