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 and a marathon runner for life. Watch your high school teachers duke it out and raise money to feed orphans at 4 orphan dinner dances on the four days leading up to the 11th annual Kisumu, Kenya World AIDS Marathon on World AIDS Day, December 1, 2016. We will also be providing medical care for the orphans. Since 2006 the Richard M. Brodsky Foundation has sponsored 21 festive orphan dinner dances for 6,966 Kenyan orphans, since 2011 the Foundation has provided medical care, oftentimes lifesaving for 790 orphans at the orphan dinner dances. This opportunity could easily come about if your school has an AIDS Awareness Club, Here is a link about what we were able to accomplish last year, http://www.worldaidsmarathon.com/PhotosfromWAM2015.html, only this year we will be sponsoring an additional orphan dinner dances. To feed 1,000 Kenyan orphans and provide entertainment and medical care the cost will be $4,000, but you can just co-sponsor an orphan dinner dance for $500.
The Great Neck North High School has been sponsoring this Event since 2012. here is a 5 minute video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfjSVJ4h49E.
