-- This month’s 27th annual AIDS Walk New York (AWNY) once again drew a massive crowd of 45,000 participants to Central Park, including The Marketing Professionals, Inc. A star-studded Opening Ceremony preceded the 10-kilometer walk, which raised millions for GMHC and more than 40 other vital AIDS service organizations in the tri-state area. Dozens of corporate sponsors bolstered the efforts of tens of thousands of individual walkers, who together raised among the highest sums in the event’s long history.
The Marketing Professionals, based in New Brunswick NJ were excited to be a company sponser of the event for the second year in a row. "Just knowing that as a company we were able to go out and show our support to a great event meant a lot.” states Duran Kelly, president of The Marketing Professionals, Inc.
“Today’s extraordinary turnout of supporters and the impressive sum of $6,014,822 raised is testament to the tri-state area’s deep commitment to ending AIDS,” said Craig R. Miller, Founder and Producer of the event.
