With this historical event, and having the Nationl AIDS quilt for Hawai'i here on Maui for teh first time, it will be an extremely rare and meaningful opportunity to pay tribute to those lost right within our local communities. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Gather to pay special tribute, become aware, be moved, share compassion and remembrance, and move forward in ways that will make a brighter future for our youth here in Hawai'i. The youth HIV diagnosis in Hawai'i has shown a recent increase. It is time to remember that there is no cure, learn where HIV stands today here on Maui, learn about prevention, and join in educating our youth to live long and healthy lives.
THERE IS STILL WORK TO DO.
There is no cure.
Youth diagnosis is on the rise in Hawai'i.
Although we have come a long way, the epidemic continues, claiming 35 million lives to date.
It is not just global, it is local.
Join us in community as we raise awareness (it will surprise you), gather in remembrance of those we have lost in Hawai'i, and celebrate the progress we have made.
Tickets are structured for "pay what you can" donations.
Donations will be focused towards these four vital areas:
· Youth support groups and education
· Free clinical testing and linkage to medical care
· Transportation to doctor's appointments, and our
· Harm Reduction initiatives among our houseless communities in Maui County
Featuring a special musical performance by Drew Martin @drewheynow and Kaui Kreuger @kaui_music and guest speakers. MAF will be making a special announcement in our opening ceremony! Concessions will be available for purchase.
Mahalo Nui Loa for your support, it brings health and immeasurable hope to many lives.
