Run-in-a-Million Run from San Francisco to Los Angeles to Raise Awareness About AIDS and HIV Testing
Date:11/30/2007

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Mike Sacco and close friend Lejon Boudreaux, along with world-renowned, ultra-marathoner Dean Karnazes have signed on to bring awareness to the AIDS epidemic by staging a run from San Francisco to Los Angeles. The 510-mile trip will kick off World AIDS Day activities on Dec. 1 and end two weeks later on Dec. 14, 2007. At the end of each day, the runners will participate in a variety of local activities. The trip will be chronicled via writings and images that will be posted on a blog on http://www.BlackAIDS.org

"Our goal is to raise money to end the AIDS epidemic and to reach at least one million people with messages about HIV testing, treatment and stigma. We will speak to people about the importance of each person taking part in this critical fight in their own individual way," says Sacco.

"The AIDS epidemic looks very different today than it did when I got infected 25 years ago," says Phill Wilson, CEO and founder of the Black AIDS Institute. "Many of us made a promise not to stop fighting until it was over. Mike Sacco is trying to keep that promise. In my book, he is truly one in a million."
