Held on Saturday in New York City, The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Carnival brought out celebrities to help raise fund for children’s aids research.
Last year’s carnival raised more than 1.7 million dollars, let’s hope they were able to surpass that.
The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation seeks to prevent pediatric HIV infection and to eradicate pediatric AIDS through research, advocacy, and prevention and treatment programs.
In 1981, Elizabeth Glaser was infected with the AIDS virus through a blood transfusion, and unknowingly passed it on to both of her children. The Glaser family’s tragedy inspired the creation of the Pediatric AIDS Foundation in 1988. Since then, we have been at the forefront of the fight against pediatric HIV/AIDS, making remarkable strides in our struggle against an illness that has ravaged the globe.
