17th annul 5K AIDS Cancer Run Walk + World AIDS Marathon, half marathon, 10K and 5K on Rockaway Beach Boardwalk, Queens, NY + 5K Event in Kenya

Posters need to be designed / modified for this year's event.

My name is Richard Brodsky and I'm President of the Richard M. Brodsky Foundation. I'm HIV+ since 1997, a brain cancer survivor since 2002. At age 71, according to the Internet there is no other marathon runner in the world who run marathons and is living with HIV and brain cancer. Right now, I need help designing a poster to honor a veteran organization and 2 heroes for the work we did in Kenya. Since 2006 the Richard M. Brodsky Foundation has sponsored 53 festive orphan dinner dances for 13,500 Kenyan orphans, since 2011, the Brodsky Foundation has provided medical care, oftentimes lifesaving for 3,300 orphans and caretakers at the orphan dinner dances. For more info visit the PHOTO links on the website, www.worldaidsmarathon.com. We will also be traveling to Kenya in mid December to sponsor 4 orphan dinner dances and provide medical care for orphans and provide a day or two of art, music and dancing for special needs kids, host a 5K run, and a meet and greet dinner for sponsors, artists, musicians, doctors and nurses, people who host orphan dinner dances, volunteers, and International participants

There are other projects where I will need someone to help with graphic design skills related to the 5K and World AIDS Marathon. The Event on the Rockaway boardwalk is the only marathon in North America to commemorate World AIDS Day and honor the 40,000,000 people who have died from AIDS.

Mission Statement

The Richard M. Brodsky Foundation focuses on raising awareness that while AIDS is a global health threat, it is destabilizing Africa. A LACK OF DOCTORS, MEDICINE, AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE, EDUCATION, CLEAN DRINKING WATER & NUTRITIOUS FOOD COMBINED W/ AN ABUNDANCE OF POVERTY, HUNGER, MALARIA & TUBERCULOSIS is the reason why 2/3 of the people dying from AIDS are from sub-Saharan Africa. This Foundation exists to: (1) Improve the lives of people affected by HIV and cancer both in Africa + America with a strong emphasis on helping orphans + kids; (2) Raise awareness to government, business + society that people living w/ HIV + cancer can lead healthy productive lives if they have access to medical care + medicine; (3) Encourage others living w/ HIV to disclose their HIV-status; (4) Encourage people w/ HIV + cancer to lead a healthy, upbeat lifestyle; (5) Provide meals/medical care for orphans in conjunction w/ World AIDS Marathon; + (6) Raise money for HIV + cancer cures
